Shorting Chewy shares

There are currently 12.4 million Chewy shares held short by investors – that's known as Chewy's "short interest". This figure is 20.8% down from 15.7 million last month.

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

Chewy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Chewy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chewy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chewy shares traded daily (recently around 5.9 million). Chewy's SIR currently stands at 2.09. In other words for every 100,000 Chewy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2090 shares are currently held short.

However Chewy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chewy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chewy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chewy's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chewy shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.1916% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chewy shares, roughly 192 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 Chewy.
