Shorting Red Violet shares

There are currently 1.1 million Red Violet shares held short by investors – that's known as Red Violet's "short interest". This figure is 4% down from 1.2 million last month.

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

Red Violet's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Red Violet's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Red Violet shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Red Violet shares traded daily (recently around 48323.881239243). Red Violet's SIR currently stands at 23.24. In other words for every 100,000 Red Violet shares traded daily on the market, roughly 23240 shares are currently held short.

However Red Violet's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Red Violet shares, or, against the total number of tradable Red Violet shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Red Violet's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Red Violet shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1612% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Red Violet shares, roughly 161 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Red Violet.
