Shorting Bloom Energy Corporation shares

There are currently 15.1 million Bloom Energy Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Bloom Energy Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 26.3% down from 20.5 million last month.

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

Bloom Energy Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bloom Energy Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bloom Energy Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bloom Energy Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 7.2 million). Bloom Energy Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.09. In other words for every 100,000 Bloom Energy Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2090 shares are currently held short.

However Bloom Energy Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bloom Energy Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bloom Energy Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bloom Energy Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bloom Energy Corporation shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1141% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bloom Energy Corporation shares, roughly 114 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 Bloom Energy Corporation.
