Shorting Vistra shares
There are currently 13.2 million Vistra shares held short by investors – that's known as Vistra's "short interest". This figure is 10.7% down from 14.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vistra shares can be evaluated.
Vistra's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Vistra's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vistra shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vistra shares traded daily (recently around 4.8 million). Vistra's SIR currently stands at 2.75. In other words for every 100,000 Vistra shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2750 shares are currently held short.
However Vistra's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vistra shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vistra shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vistra's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vistra shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0275% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vistra shares, roughly 28 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 Vistra.
