Shorting RigNet shares

There are currently 806,500 RigNet shares held short by investors – that's known as RigNet's "short interest". This figure is 18.2% down from 985,881 last month.

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

RigNet's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

RigNet's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RigNet shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RigNet shares traded daily (recently around 112013.88888889). RigNet's SIR currently stands at 7.2. In other words for every 100,000 RigNet shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7200 shares are currently held short.

However RigNet's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RigNet shares, or, against the total number of tradable RigNet shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RigNet's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RigNet shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.087% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RigNet shares, roughly 87 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against RigNet.
