Shorting Arlo Technologies shares

There are currently 3.8 million Arlo Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Arlo Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 17.9% down from 4.7 million last month.

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

Arlo Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Arlo Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arlo Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arlo Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Arlo Technologies's SIR currently stands at 3.5. In other words for every 100,000 Arlo Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3500 shares are currently held short.

However Arlo Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arlo Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arlo Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arlo Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arlo Technologies shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0669% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arlo Technologies shares, roughly 67 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 Arlo Technologies.
