Shorting Tejon Ranch shares

There are currently 360,763 Tejon Ranch shares held short by investors – that's known as Tejon Ranch's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% down from 370,621 last month.

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

Tejon Ranch's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tejon Ranch's SIR currently stands at 4.16. In other words for every 100,000 Tejon Ranch shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4160 shares are currently held short.

However Tejon Ranch's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tejon Ranch shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tejon Ranch shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tejon Ranch's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tejon Ranch shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0202% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tejon Ranch shares, roughly 20 shares are currently held short).
