Shorting StoneMor shares

There are currently 1.9 million StoneMor shares held short by investors – that's known as StoneMor's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% up from 1.8 million last month.

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

StoneMor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

StoneMor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of StoneMor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of StoneMor shares traded daily (recently around 543340.11627907). StoneMor's SIR currently stands at 3.44. In other words for every 100,000 StoneMor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3440 shares are currently held short.

However StoneMor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of StoneMor shares, or, against the total number of tradable StoneMor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case StoneMor's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 StoneMor shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0983% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable StoneMor shares, roughly 98 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 StoneMor.
