There are currently 1.1 million Arco Platform shares held short by investors – that's known as Arco Platform's "short interest". This figure is 2.1% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Arco Platform shares can be evaluated.
Arco Platform's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arco Platform shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arco Platform shares traded daily (recently around 222919.91701245). Arco Platform's SIR currently stands at 4.82. In other words for every 100,000 Arco Platform shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4820 shares are currently held short.
However Arco Platform's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arco Platform shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arco Platform shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arco Platform's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arco Platform shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0448% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arco Platform shares, roughly 45 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 Arco Platform.
