Shorting Datadog shares

There are currently 16.2 million Datadog shares held short by investors – that's known as Datadog's "short interest". This figure is 3.7% up from 15.6 million last month.

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

Datadog's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Datadog's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Datadog shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Datadog shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). Datadog's SIR currently stands at 6.26. In other words for every 100,000 Datadog shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6260 shares are currently held short.

However Datadog's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Datadog shares, or, against the total number of tradable Datadog shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Datadog's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Datadog shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0837% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Datadog shares, roughly 84 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Datadog.
