Shorting Guidewire Software shares

There are currently 3.3 million Guidewire Software shares held short by investors – that's known as Guidewire Software's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% down from 3.4 million last month.

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

Guidewire Software's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Guidewire Software's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Guidewire Software shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Guidewire Software shares traded daily (recently around 563235.69023569). Guidewire Software's SIR currently stands at 5.94. In other words for every 100,000 Guidewire Software shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5940 shares are currently held short.

However Guidewire Software's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Guidewire Software shares, or, against the total number of tradable Guidewire Software shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Guidewire Software's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Guidewire Software shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0446% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Guidewire Software shares, roughly 45 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 Guidewire Software.
