Shorting Coupang shares
There are currently 61.0 million Coupang shares held short by investors – that's known as Coupang's "short interest". This figure is 11.9% up from 54.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Coupang shares can be evaluated.
Coupang's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Coupang's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Coupang shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Coupang shares traded daily (recently around 4.4 million). Coupang's SIR currently stands at 14.01. In other words for every 100,000 Coupang shares traded daily on the market, roughly 14010 shares are currently held short.
To gain some more context, you can compare Coupang's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.
However Coupang's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Coupang shares, or, against the total number of tradable Coupang shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Coupang's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Coupang shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.1228% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Coupang shares, roughly 123 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Coupang.
