Shorting Newpark Resources shares

There are currently 1.4 million Newpark Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as Newpark Resources's "short interest". This figure is 9.6% up from 1.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Newpark Resources shares can be evaluated.

Newpark Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Newpark Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Newpark Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Newpark Resources shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Newpark Resources's SIR currently stands at 1.4. In other words for every 100,000 Newpark Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1400 shares are currently held short.

However Newpark Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Newpark Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable Newpark Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Newpark Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Newpark Resources shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0217% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Newpark Resources shares, roughly 22 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Newpark Resources.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Newpark Resources shares which in turn could have impacted Newpark Resources's share price.
