Shorting Summer Infant shares

There are currently 7,937 Summer Infant shares held short by investors – that's known as Summer Infant's "short interest". This figure is 65.8% up from 4,787 last month.

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

Summer Infant's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Summer Infant's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Summer Infant shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Summer Infant shares traded daily (recently around 9448.8095238095). Summer Infant's SIR currently stands at 0.84. In other words for every 100,000 Summer Infant shares traded daily on the market, roughly 840 shares are currently held short.

However Summer Infant's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Summer Infant shares, or, against the total number of tradable Summer Infant shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Summer Infant's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Summer Infant shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0087% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Summer Infant shares, roughly 9 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 Summer Infant.

However, indirectly, the new 800% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Summer Infant shares which in turn could have impacted Summer Infant's share price.
