Shorting The Meet Group shares

There are currently 5.4 million The Meet Group shares held short by investors – that's known as The Meet Group's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% up from 5.4 million last month.

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

The Meet Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The Meet Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Meet Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Meet Group shares traded daily (recently around 907558.31932773). The Meet Group's SIR currently stands at 5.95. In other words for every 100,000 The Meet Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5950 shares are currently held short.

However The Meet Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Meet Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Meet Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Meet Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Meet Group shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0827% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Meet Group shares, roughly 83 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against The Meet Group.
