Shorting Talos Energy shares

There are currently 3.2 million Talos Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Talos Energy's "short interest". This figure is 26.5% up from 2.5 million last month.

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

Talos Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Talos Energy's SIR currently stands at 2.84. In other words for every 100,000 Talos Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2840 shares are currently held short.

However Talos Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Talos Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Talos Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Talos Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Talos Energy shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0668% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Talos Energy shares, roughly 67 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 Talos Energy.
