There are currently 11.6 million PBF Energy stocks held short by investors – that's known as PBF Energy's "short interest". This figure is 6% down from 12.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PBF Energy stocks can be evaluated.

PBF Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PBF Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PBF Energy stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PBF Energy stocks traded daily (recently around 2.7 million). PBF Energy's SIR currently stands at 4.26. In other words for every 100,000 PBF Energy stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4260 stocks are currently held short.

However PBF Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PBF Energy stocks, or, against the total number of tradable PBF Energy stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PBF Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 PBF Energy stocks in existence, roughly 100 stocks are currently held short) or 0.1212% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable PBF Energy stocks, roughly 121 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 PBF Energy.
