Shorting Coursera shares

There are currently 5.1 million Coursera shares held short by investors – that's known as Coursera's "short interest". This figure is 39.1% up from 3.7 million last month.

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

Coursera's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Coursera's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Coursera shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Coursera shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Coursera's SIR currently stands at 4.83. In other words for every 100,000 Coursera shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4830 shares are currently held short.

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

However Coursera's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Coursera shares, or, against the total number of tradable Coursera shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Coursera's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Coursera shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0752% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Coursera shares, roughly 75 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 Coursera.
