Shorting Westwater Resources shares

There are currently 1.9 million Westwater Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as Westwater Resources's "short interest". This figure is 62.5% up from 1.2 million last month.

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

Westwater Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Westwater Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Westwater Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Westwater Resources shares traded daily (recently around 8.0 million). Westwater Resources's SIR currently stands at 0.24. In other words for every 100,000 Westwater Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 240 shares are currently held short.

However Westwater Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Westwater Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable Westwater Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Westwater Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Westwater Resources shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1007% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Westwater Resources shares, roughly 101 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 Westwater Resources.
