Shorting WEX shares
There are currently 1.5 million WEX shares held short by investors – that's known as WEX's "short interest". This figure is 4.8% up from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting WEX shares can be evaluated.
WEX's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
WEX's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WEX shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WEX shares traded daily (recently around 350286.43678161). WEX's SIR currently stands at 4.35. In other words for every 100,000 WEX shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4350 shares are currently held short.
However WEX's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WEX shares, or, against the total number of tradable WEX shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WEX's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WEX shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0344% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WEX shares, roughly 34 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 WEX.
