Shorting Nikola Corporation shares

There are currently 61.8 million Nikola Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Nikola Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% up from 61.1 million last month.

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

Nikola Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Nikola Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nikola Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nikola Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 15.3 million). Nikola Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.04. In other words for every 100,000 Nikola Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4040 shares are currently held short.

However Nikola Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nikola Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nikola Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nikola Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.16% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nikola Corporation shares in existence, roughly 160 shares are currently held short) or 0.3618% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nikola Corporation shares, roughly 362 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 Nikola Corporation.
