Shorting The Joint shares

There are currently 1.1 million The Joint shares held short by investors – that's known as The Joint's "short interest". This figure is 4.2% down from 1.2 million last month.

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

The Joint's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The Joint's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Joint shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Joint shares traded daily (recently around 84492.518518519). The Joint's SIR currently stands at 13.5. In other words for every 100,000 The Joint shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13500 shares are currently held short.

However The Joint's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Joint shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Joint shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Joint's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Joint shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0987% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Joint shares, roughly 99 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against The Joint.
