Shorting MongoDB shares

There are currently 8.3 million MongoDB shares held short by investors – that's known as MongoDB's "short interest". This figure is 1% up from 8.3 million last month.

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

MongoDB's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MongoDB's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MongoDB shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MongoDB shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). MongoDB's SIR currently stands at 7.41. In other words for every 100,000 MongoDB shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7410 shares are currently held short.

However MongoDB's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MongoDB shares, or, against the total number of tradable MongoDB shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MongoDB's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MongoDB shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1912% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MongoDB shares, roughly 191 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 MongoDB.

MongoDB share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, MongoDB's shares have ranged in value from as little as $93.81 up to $271.6. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MDB.US volatility(beta: 0.65)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while MongoDB's is 0.6539. This would suggest that MongoDB's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
