Shorting TETRA Technologies shares

There are currently 1.3 million TETRA Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as TETRA Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 8.6% down from 1.5 million last month.

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

TETRA Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TETRA Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TETRA Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TETRA Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). TETRA Technologies's SIR currently stands at 0.84. In other words for every 100,000 TETRA Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 840 shares are currently held short.

However TETRA Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TETRA Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable TETRA Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TETRA Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TETRA Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0132% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TETRA Technologies 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 TETRA Technologies.
