Shorting Vornado Realty Trust shares

There are currently 16.2 million Vornado Realty Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Vornado Realty Trust's "short interest". This figure is 1.8% up from 16.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vornado Realty Trust shares can be evaluated.

Vornado Realty Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vornado Realty Trust's SIR currently stands at 10.74. In other words for every 100,000 Vornado Realty Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10740 shares are currently held short.

However Vornado Realty Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vornado Realty Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vornado Realty Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float").

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Vornado Realty Trust.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Vornado Realty Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 19.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vornado Realty Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Vornado Realty Trust's share price.
