There are currently 1.7 million Salem Media Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Salem Media Group's "short interest". This figure is 13.9% up from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Salem Media Group shares can be evaluated.
Salem Media Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Salem Media Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Salem Media Group shares traded daily (recently around 943011.93181818). Salem Media Group's SIR currently stands at 1.76. In other words for every 100,000 Salem Media Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1760 shares are currently held short.
However Salem Media Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Salem Media Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Salem Media Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Salem Media Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Salem Media Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.1237% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Salem Media Group shares, roughly 124 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 Salem Media Group.
