Shorting Affirm shares

There are currently 9.0 million Affirm shares held short by investors – that's known as Affirm's "short interest". This figure is 13.8% up from 7.9 million last month.

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

Affirm's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Affirm's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Affirm shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Affirm shares traded daily (recently around 3.1 million). Affirm's SIR currently stands at 2.94. In other words for every 100,000 Affirm shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2940 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Affirm's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Affirm's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Affirm shares, or, against the total number of tradable Affirm shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Affirm's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Affirm shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0929% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Affirm shares, roughly 93 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 Affirm.
