Shorting Top Ships shares

There are currently 2.5 million Top Ships shares held short by investors – that's known as Top Ships's "short interest". This figure is 14% down from 3.0 million last month.

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

Top Ships's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Top Ships's SIR currently stands at 3.06. In other words for every 100,000 Top Ships shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3060 shares are currently held short.

However Top Ships's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Top Ships shares, or, against the total number of tradable Top Ships shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Top Ships's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Top Ships shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0642% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Top Ships shares, roughly 64 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 Top Ships.
