Shorting BB Liquidating shares

There are currently 23.7 million BB Liquidating shares held short by investors – that's known as BB Liquidating's "short interest". This figure is 19.8% down from 29.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BB Liquidating shares can be evaluated.

BB Liquidating's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BB Liquidating's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BB Liquidating shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BB Liquidating shares traded daily (recently around 5.9 million). BB Liquidating's SIR currently stands at 3.98. In other words for every 100,000 BB Liquidating shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3980 shares are currently held short.

However BB Liquidating's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BB Liquidating shares, or, against the total number of tradable BB Liquidating shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BB Liquidating's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BB Liquidating shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1677% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BB Liquidating shares, roughly 168 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 BB Liquidating.
