There are currently 12.6 million Rite Aid Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Rite Aid Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 18.6% down from 15.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Rite Aid Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Rite Aid Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rite Aid Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rite Aid Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). Rite Aid Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.88. In other words for every 100,000 Rite Aid Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4880 shares are currently held short.
However Rite Aid Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rite Aid Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Rite Aid Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rite Aid Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.23% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Rite Aid Corporation shares in existence, roughly 230 shares are currently held short) or 0.2567% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rite Aid Corporation shares, roughly 257 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 Rite Aid Corporation.
