Shorting Shake Shack shares

There are currently 3.5 million Shake Shack shares held short by investors – that's known as Shake Shack's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% up from 3.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Shake Shack shares can be evaluated.

Shake Shack's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Shake Shack's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Shake Shack shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Shake Shack shares traded daily (recently around 605952.18150087). Shake Shack's SIR currently stands at 5.73. In other words for every 100,000 Shake Shack shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5730 shares are currently held short.

However Shake Shack's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Shake Shack shares, or, against the total number of tradable Shake Shack shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Shake Shack's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Shake Shack shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1097% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Shake Shack shares, roughly 110 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Shake Shack.
