Shorting Westwood Holdings Group shares

There are currently 93,451 Westwood Holdings Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Westwood Holdings Group's "short interest". This figure is 5.5% down from 98,880 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Westwood Holdings Group shares can be evaluated.

Westwood Holdings Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Westwood Holdings Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Westwood Holdings Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Westwood Holdings Group shares traded daily (recently around 52797.175141243). Westwood Holdings Group's SIR currently stands at 1.77. In other words for every 100,000 Westwood Holdings Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1770 shares are currently held short.

However Westwood Holdings Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Westwood Holdings Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Westwood Holdings Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Westwood Holdings Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Westwood Holdings Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0124% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Westwood Holdings Group shares, roughly 12 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 Westwood Holdings Group.
