Shorting Anaplan shares

There are currently 11.1 million Anaplan shares held short by investors – that's known as Anaplan's "short interest". This figure is 19.5% down from 13.7 million last month.

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

Anaplan's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Anaplan's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Anaplan shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Anaplan shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Anaplan's SIR currently stands at 6.78. In other words for every 100,000 Anaplan shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6780 shares are currently held short.

However Anaplan's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Anaplan shares, or, against the total number of tradable Anaplan shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Anaplan's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Anaplan shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.082% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Anaplan shares, roughly 82 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Anaplan.

Anaplan share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Anaplan's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.04 up to $86.17. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PLAN.US volatility(beta: 2.07)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Anaplan's is 2.0678. This would suggest that Anaplan's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
