Shorting Steel Connect shares

There are currently 189,063 Steel Connect shares held short by investors – that's known as Steel Connect's "short interest". This figure is 11.9% down from 214,709 last month.

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

Steel Connect's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Steel Connect's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Steel Connect shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Steel Connect shares traded daily (recently around 91334.782608696). Steel Connect's SIR currently stands at 2.07. In other words for every 100,000 Steel Connect shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2070 shares are currently held short.

However Steel Connect's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Steel Connect shares, or, against the total number of tradable Steel Connect shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Steel Connect's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Steel Connect shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.005% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Steel Connect shares, roughly 5 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 Steel Connect.
