Shorting Synthesis Energy Systems shares

There are currently 80,335 Synthesis Energy Systems shares held short by investors – that's known as Synthesis Energy Systems's "short interest". This figure is 6.7% up from 75,257 last month.

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

Synthesis Energy Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Synthesis Energy Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Synthesis Energy Systems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Synthesis Energy Systems shares traded daily (recently around 50525.157232704). Synthesis Energy Systems's SIR currently stands at 1.59. In other words for every 100,000 Synthesis Energy Systems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1590 shares are currently held short.

However Synthesis Energy Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Synthesis Energy Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Synthesis Energy Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Synthesis Energy Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Synthesis Energy Systems shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0589% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Synthesis Energy Systems shares, roughly 59 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 Synthesis Energy Systems.

However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Synthesis Energy Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Synthesis Energy Systems's share price.
