There are currently 1.0 million Sierra Wireless shares held short by investors – that's known as Sierra Wireless's "short interest". This figure is 4.8% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sierra Wireless shares can be evaluated.
Sierra Wireless's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sierra Wireless shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sierra Wireless shares traded daily (recently around 200450). Sierra Wireless's SIR currently stands at 5.18. In other words for every 100,000 Sierra Wireless shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5180 shares are currently held short.
However Sierra Wireless's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sierra Wireless shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sierra Wireless shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sierra Wireless's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sierra Wireless shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0274% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sierra Wireless shares, roughly 27 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 Sierra Wireless.
