Shorting Airbnb shares

There are currently 14.1 million Airbnb shares held short by investors – that's known as Airbnb's "short interest". This figure is 12.4% up from 12.5 million last month.

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

Airbnb's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Airbnb's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Airbnb shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Airbnb shares traded daily (recently around 6.9 million). Airbnb's SIR currently stands at 2.03. In other words for every 100,000 Airbnb shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2030 shares are currently held short.

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

However Airbnb's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Airbnb shares, or, against the total number of tradable Airbnb shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Airbnb's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Airbnb shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0437% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Airbnb shares, roughly 44 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 Airbnb.
