Shorting GoodRx shares

There are currently 13.0 million GoodRx shares held short by investors – that's known as GoodRx's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% up from 12.9 million last month.

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

GoodRx's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

GoodRx's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GoodRx shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GoodRx shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). GoodRx's SIR currently stands at 4.66. In other words for every 100,000 GoodRx shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4660 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare GoodRx's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However GoodRx's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GoodRx shares, or, against the total number of tradable GoodRx shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GoodRx's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GoodRx shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.2052% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GoodRx shares, roughly 205 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 GoodRx.
