Shorting Dropbox shares
There are currently 26.4 million Dropbox shares held short by investors – that's known as Dropbox's "short interest". This figure is 4.5% down from 27.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Dropbox shares can be evaluated.
Dropbox's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Dropbox's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dropbox shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dropbox shares traded daily (recently around 5.8 million). Dropbox's SIR currently stands at 4.55. In other words for every 100,000 Dropbox shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4550 shares are currently held short.
However Dropbox's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dropbox shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dropbox shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dropbox's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dropbox shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0921% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dropbox shares, roughly 92 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 Dropbox.
