Shorting Rite Aid Corporation shares

There are currently 12.5 million Rite Aid Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Rite Aid Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 40.1% up from 8.9 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)

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 0.2411% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rite Aid Corporation shares, roughly 241 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.
