Shorting Blue Apron shares

There are currently 1.7 million Blue Apron shares held short by investors – that's known as Blue Apron's "short interest". This figure is 33% down from 2.5 million last month.

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

Blue Apron's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Blue Apron's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Blue Apron shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Blue Apron shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Blue Apron's SIR currently stands at 1.6. In other words for every 100,000 Blue Apron shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1600 shares are currently held short.

However Blue Apron's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Blue Apron shares, or, against the total number of tradable Blue Apron shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Blue Apron's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Blue Apron shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1705% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Blue Apron shares, roughly 171 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 Blue Apron.

Have Blue Apron's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Blue Apron shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Blue Apron shares which in turn could have impacted Blue Apron's share price.

Blue Apron share price volatility
