Shorting Lyft shares
There are currently 30.0 million Lyft shares held short by investors – that's known as Lyft's "short interest". This figure is 2.6% up from 29.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lyft shares can be evaluated.
Lyft's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Lyft's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lyft shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lyft shares traded daily (recently around 4.9 million). Lyft's SIR currently stands at 6.13. In other words for every 100,000 Lyft shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6130 shares are currently held short.
However Lyft's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lyft shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lyft shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lyft's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lyft shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.108% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lyft shares, roughly 108 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 Lyft.

Lyft share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Lyft's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.91 up to $68.28. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Lyft's is 2.3068. This would suggest that Lyft's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
