Shorting PowerFleet shares

There are currently 654,071 PowerFleet shares held short by investors – that's known as PowerFleet's "short interest". This figure is 7.3% down from 705,694 last month.

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

PowerFleet's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PowerFleet's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PowerFleet shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PowerFleet shares traded daily (recently around 113553.99305556). PowerFleet's SIR currently stands at 5.76. In other words for every 100,000 PowerFleet shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5760 shares are currently held short.

However PowerFleet's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PowerFleet shares, or, against the total number of tradable PowerFleet shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PowerFleet's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PowerFleet shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0232% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PowerFleet shares, roughly 23 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against PowerFleet.
