Shorting Whole Earth Brands shares

There are currently 2.9 million Whole Earth Brands shares held short by investors – that's known as Whole Earth Brands's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% down from 2.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Whole Earth Brands shares can be evaluated.

Whole Earth Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Whole Earth Brands's SIR currently stands at 10.61. In other words for every 100,000 Whole Earth Brands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10610 shares are currently held short.

However Whole Earth Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Whole Earth Brands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Whole Earth Brands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Whole Earth Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Whole Earth Brands shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0882% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Whole Earth Brands shares, roughly 88 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 Whole Earth Brands.
