Shorting LAIX shares

There are currently 62,680 LAIX shares held short by investors – that's known as LAIX's "short interest". This figure is 806.7% up from 6,913 last month.

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

LAIX's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

LAIX's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LAIX shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LAIX shares traded daily (recently around 179085.71428571). LAIX's SIR currently stands at 0.35. In other words for every 100,000 LAIX shares traded daily on the market, roughly 350 shares are currently held short.

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

LAIX share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, LAIX's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.36 up to $6.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LAIX.US volatility(beta: 1.16)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 LAIX's is 1.159. This would suggest that LAIX'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).
