Sierra Metals's SIR currently stands at 0.04. In other words for every 100,000 Sierra Metals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 40 shares are currently held short.
However Sierra Metals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sierra Metals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sierra Metals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sierra Metals's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sierra Metals shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sierra Metals shares, roughly 0 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 Sierra Metals.
