Shorting Overseas Shipholding Group shares

There are currently 697,998 Overseas Shipholding Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Overseas Shipholding Group's "short interest". This figure is 36.5% up from 511,293 last month.

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

Overseas Shipholding Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Overseas Shipholding Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Overseas Shipholding Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Overseas Shipholding Group shares traded daily (recently around 576857.85123967). Overseas Shipholding Group's SIR currently stands at 1.21. In other words for every 100,000 Overseas Shipholding Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1210 shares are currently held short.

However Overseas Shipholding Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Overseas Shipholding Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Overseas Shipholding Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Overseas Shipholding Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Overseas Shipholding Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0138% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Overseas Shipholding Group shares, roughly 14 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 Overseas Shipholding Group.

However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Overseas Shipholding Group shares which in turn could have impacted Overseas Shipholding Group's share price.
