Shorting Xunlei shares

There are currently 1.1 million Xunlei shares held short by investors – that's known as Xunlei's "short interest". This figure is 9.9% up from 956,619 last month.

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

Xunlei's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Xunlei's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Xunlei shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Xunlei shares traded daily (recently around 614649.12280702). Xunlei's SIR currently stands at 1.71. In other words for every 100,000 Xunlei shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1710 shares are currently held short.

However Xunlei's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Xunlei shares, or, against the total number of tradable Xunlei shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Xunlei's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Xunlei shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0294% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Xunlei shares, roughly 29 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 Xunlei.
