Shorting Stein Mart shares

There are currently 738,377 Stein Mart shares held short by investors – that's known as Stein Mart's "short interest". This figure is 22.4% up from 603,433 last month.

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

Stein Mart's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Stein Mart's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Stein Mart shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Stein Mart shares traded daily (recently around 4.1 million). Stein Mart's SIR currently stands at 0.18. In other words for every 100,000 Stein Mart shares traded daily on the market, roughly 180 shares are currently held short.

However Stein Mart's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Stein Mart shares, or, against the total number of tradable Stein Mart shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Stein Mart's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Stein Mart shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0172% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Stein Mart shares, roughly 17 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 Stein Mart.
