Shorting Confluent shares

There are currently 2.1 million Confluent shares held short by investors – that's known as Confluent's "short interest". This figure is 329.4% up from 481,727 last month.

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

Confluent's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Confluent's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Confluent shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Confluent shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). Confluent's SIR currently stands at 0.96. In other words for every 100,000 Confluent shares traded daily on the market, roughly 960 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Confluent's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Confluent's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Confluent shares, or, against the total number of tradable Confluent shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Confluent's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Confluent shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.2001% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Confluent shares, roughly 200 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 Confluent.
