Looking Into Chipotle Mexican Grill's Recent Short Interest

By Benzinga Insights

Chipotle Mexican Grill's (NYSE:CMG) short percent of float has risen 10.77% since its last report. The company recently reported that it has 800.00 thousand shares sold short, which is 2.88% of all regular shares that are available for trading. Based on its trading volume, it would take traders 2.6 days to cover their short positions on average.

Why Short Interest Matters

Short interest is the number of shares that have been sold short but have not yet been covered or closed out. Short selling is when a trader sells shares of a company they do not own, with the hope that the price will fall. Traders make money from short selling if the price of the stock falls and they lose if it rises.

Short interest is important to track because it can act as an indicator of market sentiment towards a particular stock. An increase in short interest can signal that investors have become more bearish, while a decrease in short interest can signal they have become more bullish.

Comparing Chipotle Mexican Grill's Short Interest Against Its Peers

You can find a company's peer group by reading its 10-K, proxy filing, or by doing your own similarity analysis.

According to Benzinga Pro, Chipotle Mexican Grill's peer group average for short interest as a percentage of float is 8.25%, which means the company has less short interest than most of its peers.
