Is Renewable Energy Group under- or over-valued?

Shorting Renewable Energy Group shares

There are currently 5.1 million Renewable Energy Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Renewable Energy Group's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% up from 5.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Renewable Energy Group shares can be evaluated.

Renewable Energy Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Renewable Energy Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Renewable Energy Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Renewable Energy Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Renewable Energy Group's SIR currently stands at 4.19. In other words for every 100,000 Renewable Energy Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4190 shares are currently held short.

However Renewable Energy Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Renewable Energy Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Renewable Energy Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Renewable Energy Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Renewable Energy Group shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1609% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Renewable Energy Group shares, roughly 161 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 Renewable Energy Group.
