Shorting Avalara shares

There are currently 2.8 million Avalara shares held short by investors – that's known as Avalara's "short interest". This figure is 20.7% down from 3.5 million last month.

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

Avalara's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Avalara's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avalara shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avalara shares traded daily (recently around 651441.21779859). Avalara's SIR currently stands at 4.27. In other words for every 100,000 Avalara shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4270 shares are currently held short.

However Avalara's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avalara shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avalara shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avalara's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avalara shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0333% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avalara shares, roughly 33 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 Avalara.
