Shorting Skechers U-S-AInc shares

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Skechers U-S-AInc shares can be evaluated.

Skechers U-S-AInc's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Skechers U-S-AInc's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Skechers U-S-AInc shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Skechers U-S-AInc shares traded daily (recently around 885445.50561798). Skechers U-S-AInc's SIR currently stands at 3.56. In other words for every 100,000 Skechers U-S-AInc shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3560 shares are currently held short.

However Skechers U-S-AInc's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Skechers U-S-AInc shares, or, against the total number of tradable Skechers U-S-AInc shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Skechers U-S-AInc's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Skechers U-S-AInc shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0239% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Skechers U-S-AInc shares, roughly 24 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 Skechers U-S-AInc.
