Shorting Silvercorp Metals shares

There are currently 2.1 million Silvercorp Metals shares held short by investors – that's known as Silvercorp Metals's "short interest". This figure is 78.8% up from 1.2 million last month.

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

Silvercorp Metals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Silvercorp Metals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Silvercorp Metals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Silvercorp Metals shares traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). Silvercorp Metals's SIR currently stands at 0.91. In other words for every 100,000 Silvercorp Metals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 910 shares are currently held short.

However Silvercorp Metals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Silvercorp Metals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Silvercorp Metals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Silvercorp Metals's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Silvercorp Metals shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Silvercorp 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 Silvercorp Metals.

In Silvercorp Metals's case, that would currently equate to about $0.025 per share.

While Silvercorp Metals's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Silvercorp Metals is investing more in its future growth.
