Shorting 8x8 shares

There are currently 18.7 million 8x8 shares held short by investors – that's known as 8x8's "short interest". This figure is 6.8% down from 20.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting 8x8 shares can be evaluated.

8x8's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

8x8's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of 8x8 shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of 8x8 shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). 8x8's SIR currently stands at 15.8. In other words for every 100,000 8x8 shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15800 shares are currently held short.

However 8x8's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of 8x8 shares, or, against the total number of tradable 8x8 shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case 8x8's short interest could be expressed as 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 8x8 shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0.2424% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable 8x8 shares, roughly 242 shares are currently held short).

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 8x8.
