TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.0 million ProAssurance shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 16.8% down from 1.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ProAssurance shares can be evaluated.
ProAssurance's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ProAssurance shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ProAssurance shares traded daily (recently around 184513.57798165). ProAssurance's SIR currently stands at 5.45. In other words for every 100,000 ProAssurance shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5450 shares are currently held short.
However ProAssurance's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ProAssurance shares, or, against the total number of tradable ProAssurance shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ProAssurance's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ProAssurance shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0252% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ProAssurance shares, roughly 25 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against ProAssurance.
