Shorting Priority Technology shares

There are currently 164,685 Priority Technology shares held short by investors – that's known as Priority Technology's "short interest". This figure is 19.6% up from 137,695 last month.

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

Priority Technology's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Priority Technology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Priority Technology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Priority Technology shares traded daily (recently around 269975.40983607). Priority Technology's SIR currently stands at 0.61. In other words for every 100,000 Priority Technology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 610 shares are currently held short.

However Priority Technology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Priority Technology shares, or, against the total number of tradable Priority Technology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Priority Technology's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Priority Technology shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0087% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Priority Technology shares, roughly 9 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 Priority Technology.
