There are currently 782,400 SunOpta shares held short by investors – that's known as SunOpta's "short interest". This figure is 21.4% up from 644,667 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SunOpta shares can be evaluated.
SunOpta's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SunOpta shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SunOpta shares traded daily (recently around 652000). SunOpta's SIR currently stands at 1.2. In other words for every 100,000 SunOpta shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1200 shares are currently held short.
However SunOpta's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SunOpta shares, or, against the total number of tradable SunOpta shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SunOpta's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SunOpta shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0133% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SunOpta shares, roughly 13 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 SunOpta.
