Shorting Fitbit shares

There are currently 55.2 million Fitbit shares held short by investors – that's known as Fitbit's "short interest". This figure is 3.2% down from 57.0 million last month.

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

Fitbit's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fitbit's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fitbit shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fitbit shares traded daily (recently around 4.4 million). Fitbit's SIR currently stands at 12.67. In other words for every 100,000 Fitbit shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12670 shares are currently held short.

However Fitbit's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fitbit shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fitbit shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fitbit's short interest could be expressed as 0.2% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fitbit shares in existence, roughly 200 shares are currently held short) or 0.2291% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fitbit shares, roughly 229 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Fitbit.

Fitbit share dividends

We're not expecting Fitbit to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Fitbit share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Fitbit's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.42 up to $7.26. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FIT.US volatility(beta: 0.8)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 Fitbit's is 0.7999. This would suggest that Fitbit's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
