Shorting Chegg shares

There are currently 11.2 million Chegg shares held short by investors – that's known as Chegg's "short interest". This figure is 2% down from 11.5 million last month.

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

Chegg's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Chegg's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chegg shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chegg shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Chegg's SIR currently stands at 9.69. In other words for every 100,000 Chegg shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9690 shares are currently held short.

However Chegg's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chegg shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chegg shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chegg's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chegg shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0795% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chegg shares, roughly 80 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Chegg.
