Shorting LegalZoom-com shares

There are currently 4.1 million LegalZoom-com shares held short by investors – that's known as LegalZoom-com's "short interest". This figure is 13% up from 3.6 million last month.

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

LegalZoom-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

LegalZoom-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LegalZoom-com shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LegalZoom-com shares traded daily (recently around 757453.98886827). LegalZoom-com's SIR currently stands at 5.39. In other words for every 100,000 LegalZoom-com shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5390 shares are currently held short.

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

However LegalZoom-com's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LegalZoom-com shares, or, against the total number of tradable LegalZoom-com shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LegalZoom-com's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LegalZoom-com shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0329% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LegalZoom-com shares, roughly 33 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 LegalZoom-com.
