Shorting StarTek shares

There are currently 269,339 StarTek shares held short by investors – that's known as StarTek's "short interest". This figure is 4% down from 280,625 last month.

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

StarTek's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

StarTek's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of StarTek shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of StarTek shares traded daily (recently around 43094.24). StarTek's SIR currently stands at 6.25. In other words for every 100,000 StarTek shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6250 shares are currently held short.

However StarTek's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of StarTek shares, or, against the total number of tradable StarTek shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case StarTek's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 StarTek shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0159% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable StarTek shares, roughly 16 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 StarTek.
