Shorting RiceBran Technologies shares

There are currently 156,978 RiceBran Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as RiceBran Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 10.2% down from 174,882 last month.

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

RiceBran Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

RiceBran Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RiceBran Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RiceBran Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 301880.76923077). RiceBran Technologies's SIR currently stands at 0.52. In other words for every 100,000 RiceBran Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 520 shares are currently held short.

However RiceBran Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RiceBran Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable RiceBran Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RiceBran Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RiceBran Technologies shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0052% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RiceBran Technologies shares, roughly 5 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 RiceBran Technologies.
