There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Net 1 UEPS Technologies shares can be evaluated.

Net 1 UEPS Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Net 1 UEPS Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Net 1 UEPS Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Net 1 UEPS Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 449832.23140496).

However Net 1 UEPS Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Net 1 UEPS Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Net 1 UEPS Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Net 1 UEPS Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Net 1 UEPS Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0145% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Net 1 UEPS Technologies shares, roughly 15 shares are currently held short).
