Shorting Kingsoft Cloud shares

There are currently 2.5 million Kingsoft Cloud shares held short by investors – that's known as Kingsoft Cloud's "short interest". This figure is 32.2% down from 3.6 million last month.

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

Kingsoft Cloud's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kingsoft Cloud's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kingsoft Cloud shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kingsoft Cloud shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Kingsoft Cloud's SIR currently stands at 1.58. In other words for every 100,000 Kingsoft Cloud shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1580 shares are currently held short.

However Kingsoft Cloud's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kingsoft Cloud shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kingsoft Cloud shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kingsoft Cloud's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kingsoft Cloud shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kingsoft Cloud shares, roughly 0 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 Kingsoft Cloud.

Have Kingsoft Cloud's shares ever split?

Kingsoft Cloud's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 1 September 2005. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kingsoft Cloud shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kingsoft Cloud shares which in turn could have impacted Kingsoft Cloud's share price.
