LexinFintech's SIR currently stands at 0.39. In other words for every 100,000 LexinFintech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 390 shares are currently held short.

However LexinFintech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LexinFintech shares, or, against the total number of tradable LexinFintech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LexinFintech's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LexinFintech shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0101% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LexinFintech shares, roughly 10 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 LexinFintech.
