Shorting Willdan Group shares

There are currently 950,912 Willdan Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Willdan Group's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% up from 938,209 last month.

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

Willdan Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Willdan Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Willdan Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Willdan Group shares traded daily (recently around 137216.73881674). Willdan Group's SIR currently stands at 6.93. In other words for every 100,000 Willdan Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6930 shares are currently held short.

However Willdan Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Willdan Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Willdan Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Willdan Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Willdan Group shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0826% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Willdan Group shares, roughly 83 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Willdan Group.
