Shorting Qumu Corporation shares

There are currently 81,534 Qumu Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Qumu Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 84,120 last month.

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

Qumu Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Qumu Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Qumu Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Qumu Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 189613.95348837). Qumu Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.43. In other words for every 100,000 Qumu Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 430 shares are currently held short.

However Qumu Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Qumu Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Qumu Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Qumu Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Qumu Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0077% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Qumu Corporation shares, roughly 8 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 Qumu Corporation.
