Shorting Synacor shares

There are currently 71,517 Synacor shares held short by investors – that's known as Synacor's "short interest". This figure is 11.5% down from 80,791 last month.

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

Synacor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Synacor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Synacor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Synacor shares traded daily (recently around 65611.926605505). Synacor's SIR currently stands at 1.09. In other words for every 100,000 Synacor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1090 shares are currently held short.

However Synacor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Synacor shares, or, against the total number of tradable Synacor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Synacor's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Synacor shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0022% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Synacor shares, roughly 2 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 Synacor.
