Shorting Spok shares

There are currently 232,454 Spok shares held short by investors – that's known as Spok's "short interest". This figure is 38.5% up from 167,830 last month.

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

Spok's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Spok's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Spok shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Spok shares traded daily (recently around 97669.74789916). Spok's SIR currently stands at 2.38. In other words for every 100,000 Spok shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2380 shares are currently held short.

However Spok's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Spok shares, or, against the total number of tradable Spok shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Spok's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Spok shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0156% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Spok shares, roughly 16 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 Spok.
