There are currently 1.5 million Pilgrims Pride Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Pilgrims Pride Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.8% down from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Pilgrims Pride Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Pilgrims Pride Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pilgrims Pride Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pilgrims Pride Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 747821.28712871). Pilgrims Pride Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.02. In other words for every 100,000 Pilgrims Pride Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2020 shares are currently held short.
However Pilgrims Pride Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pilgrims Pride Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pilgrims Pride Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pilgrims Pride Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pilgrims Pride Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0315% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pilgrims Pride Corporation shares, roughly 32 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 Pilgrims Pride Corporation.
