There are currently 55,275 Saga Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Saga Communications's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% up from 54,855 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Saga Communications shares can be evaluated.
Saga Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Saga Communications shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Saga Communications shares traded daily (recently around 4819.0932868352). Saga Communications's SIR currently stands at 11.47. In other words for every 100,000 Saga Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11470 shares are currently held short.
However Saga Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Saga Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Saga Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Saga Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Saga Communications shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0209% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Saga Communications shares, roughly 21 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Saga Communications.
