Shorting Tribune Publishing Company shares

There are currently 1.0 million Tribune Publishing Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Tribune Publishing Company's "short interest". This figure is 2.3% down from 1.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Tribune Publishing Company shares can be evaluated.

Tribune Publishing Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tribune Publishing Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tribune Publishing Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tribune Publishing Company shares traded daily (recently around 78620.508866615). Tribune Publishing Company's SIR currently stands at 12.97. In other words for every 100,000 Tribune Publishing Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12970 shares are currently held short.

However Tribune Publishing Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tribune Publishing Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tribune Publishing Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tribune Publishing Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tribune Publishing Company shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0617% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tribune Publishing Company shares, roughly 62 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 Tribune Publishing Company.
