Shorting Fastly shares

There are currently 16.7 million Fastly shares held short by investors – that's known as Fastly's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% down from 16.9 million last month.

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

Fastly's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fastly's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fastly shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fastly shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). Fastly's SIR currently stands at 6.87. In other words for every 100,000 Fastly shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6870 shares are currently held short.

However Fastly's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fastly shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fastly shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fastly's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fastly shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1767% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fastly shares, roughly 177 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 Fastly.

Fastly share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Fastly's shares have ranged in value from as little as $36.62 up to $122.75. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FSLY.US volatility(beta: 1.13)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Fastly's is 1.1257. This would suggest that Fastly's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
