Shorting Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares

There are currently 21.7 million Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares held short by investors – that's known as Bed Bath-and-Beyond's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% down from 22.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares can be evaluated.

Bed Bath-and-Beyond's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bed Bath-and-Beyond's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares traded daily (recently around 5.1 million). Bed Bath-and-Beyond's SIR currently stands at 4.23. In other words for every 100,000 Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4230 shares are currently held short.

However Bed Bath-and-Beyond's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bed Bath-and-Beyond's short interest could be expressed as 0.22% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares in existence, roughly 220 shares are currently held short) or 0.2304% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares, roughly 230 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 Bed Bath-and-Beyond.
