Schmitt Industries's SIR currently stands at 2.3. In other words for every 100,000 Schmitt Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2300 shares are currently held short.
However Schmitt Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Schmitt Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Schmitt Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Schmitt Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Schmitt Industries shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0082% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Schmitt Industries shares, roughly 8 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 Schmitt Industries.
