Shorting Spirit Airlines shares

There are currently 6.6 million Spirit Airlines shares held short by investors – that's known as Spirit Airlines's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% up from 6.5 million last month.

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

Spirit Airlines's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Spirit Airlines's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Spirit Airlines shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Spirit Airlines shares traded daily (recently around 3.7 million). Spirit Airlines's SIR currently stands at 1.8. In other words for every 100,000 Spirit Airlines shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1800 shares are currently held short.

However Spirit Airlines's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Spirit Airlines shares, or, against the total number of tradable Spirit Airlines shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Spirit Airlines's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Spirit Airlines shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0614% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Spirit Airlines shares, roughly 61 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 Spirit Airlines.
