Shorting W-and-T Offshore shares

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting W-and-T Offshore shares can be evaluated.

W-and-T Offshore's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

W-and-T Offshore's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of W-and-T Offshore shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of W-and-T Offshore shares traded daily (recently around 3.0 million). W-and-T Offshore's SIR currently stands at 6.31. In other words for every 100,000 W-and-T Offshore shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6310 shares are currently held short.

However W-and-T Offshore's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of W-and-T Offshore shares, or, against the total number of tradable W-and-T Offshore shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case W-and-T Offshore's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 W-and-T Offshore shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.2033% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable W-and-T Offshore shares, roughly 203 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 W-and-T Offshore.

However, indirectly, the new 99.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for W-and-T Offshore shares which in turn could have impacted W-and-T Offshore's share price.
