Shorting Dynatrace shares

There are currently 5.5 million Dynatrace shares held short by investors – that's known as Dynatrace's "short interest". This figure is 43.3% down from 9.8 million last month.

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

Dynatrace's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dynatrace's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dynatrace shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dynatrace shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). Dynatrace's SIR currently stands at 2. In other words for every 100,000 Dynatrace shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2000 shares are currently held short.

However Dynatrace's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dynatrace shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dynatrace shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dynatrace's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dynatrace shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0341% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dynatrace shares, roughly 34 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 Dynatrace.
