Shorting Pyxus International shares

There are currently 3.4 million Pyxus International shares held short by investors – that's known as Pyxus International's "short interest". This figure is 11% up from 3.1 million last month.

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

Pyxus International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Pyxus International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pyxus International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pyxus International shares traded daily (recently around 884977.02349869). Pyxus International's SIR currently stands at 3.83. In other words for every 100,000 Pyxus International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3830 shares are currently held short.

However Pyxus International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pyxus International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pyxus International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pyxus International's short interest could be expressed as 0.34% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pyxus International shares in existence, roughly 340 shares are currently held short) or 0.3654% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pyxus International shares, roughly 365 shares are currently held short).
