There are currently 9.8 million Kodak stocks held short by investors – that's known as Kodak 's "short interest". This figure is 4% up from 9.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kodak stocks can be evaluated.
Kodak 's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Kodak 's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kodak stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kodak stocks traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). Kodak 's SIR currently stands at 4.36. In other words for every 100,000 Kodak stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4360 stocks are currently held short.
However Kodak 's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kodak stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Kodak stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kodak 's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Kodak stocks in existence, roughly 130 stocks are currently held short) or 0.1557% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Kodak stocks, roughly 156 stocks are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Kodak .
