Shorting Coupa Software Incorporated shares

There are currently 7.2 million Coupa Software Incorporated shares held short by investors – that's known as Coupa Software Incorporated's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% down from 7.2 million last month.

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

Coupa Software Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Coupa Software Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Coupa Software Incorporated shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Coupa Software Incorporated shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Coupa Software Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 3.9. In other words for every 100,000 Coupa Software Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3900 shares are currently held short.

However Coupa Software Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Coupa Software Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Coupa Software Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Coupa Software Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Coupa Software Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.099% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Coupa Software Incorporated shares, roughly 99 shares are currently held short).
