Points International's SIR currently stands at 0.62. In other words for every 100,000 Points International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 620 shares are currently held short.

However Points International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Points International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Points International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Points International's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Points International shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Points International shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).

However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Points International shares which in turn could have impacted Points International's share price.
