Shorting Regis Corporation shares

There are currently 7.5 million Regis Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Regis Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 0.4% down from 7.5 million last month.

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

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

Regis Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Regis Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Regis Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 419538.69346734). Regis Corporation's SIR currently stands at 17.91. In other words for every 100,000 Regis Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 17910 shares are currently held short.

However Regis Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Regis Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Regis Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Regis Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.21% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Regis Corporation shares in existence, roughly 210 shares are currently held short) or 0.3604% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Regis Corporation shares, roughly 360 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Regis Corporation.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Regis Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Regis Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Regis Corporation's share price.

Regis Corporation share price volatility
