Shorting Take-Two Interactive Software shares

There are currently 2.3 million Take-Two Interactive Software shares held short by investors – that's known as Take-Two Interactive Software's "short interest". This figure is 14.8% down from 2.7 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Take-Two Interactive Software shares can be evaluated.

Take-Two Interactive Software's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Take-Two Interactive Software's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Take-Two Interactive Software shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Take-Two Interactive Software shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Take-Two Interactive Software's SIR currently stands at 1.67. In other words for every 100,000 Take-Two Interactive Software shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1670 shares are currently held short.

However Take-Two Interactive Software's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Take-Two Interactive Software shares, or, against the total number of tradable Take-Two Interactive Software shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Take-Two Interactive Software's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Take-Two Interactive Software shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0225% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Take-Two Interactive Software shares, roughly 23 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 Take-Two Interactive Software.
