Shorting Triple-S Management Corporation shares

There are currently 904,088 Triple-S Management Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Triple-S Management Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 23.1% down from 1.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Triple-S Management Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Triple-S Management Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Triple-S Management Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Triple-S Management Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Triple-S Management Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 84970.676691729). Triple-S Management Corporation's SIR currently stands at 10.64. In other words for every 100,000 Triple-S Management Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10640 shares are currently held short.

However Triple-S Management Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Triple-S Management Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Triple-S Management Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Triple-S Management Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Triple-S Management Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0403% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Triple-S Management Corporation shares, roughly 40 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 Triple-S Management Corporation.
