Shorting RRDonnelley-and-Sons Company shares

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting RRDonnelley-and-Sons Company shares can be evaluated.

RRDonnelley-and-Sons Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

RRDonnelley-and-Sons Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RRDonnelley-and-Sons Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RRDonnelley-and-Sons Company shares traded daily (recently around 688627.04402516). RRDonnelley-and-Sons Company's SIR currently stands at 1.59. In other words for every 100,000 RRDonnelley-and-Sons Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1590 shares are currently held short.

In this case RRDonnelley-and-Sons Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RRDonnelley-and-Sons Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0188% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RRDonnelley-and-Sons Company shares, roughly 19 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 RRDonnelley-and-Sons Company.
