Shorting PagerDuty shares

There are currently 7.0 million PagerDuty shares held short by investors – that's known as PagerDuty's "short interest". This figure is 27.6% down from 9.6 million last month.

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

PagerDuty's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PagerDuty's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PagerDuty shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PagerDuty shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). PagerDuty's SIR currently stands at 6.38. In other words for every 100,000 PagerDuty shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6380 shares are currently held short.

However PagerDuty's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PagerDuty shares, or, against the total number of tradable PagerDuty shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PagerDuty's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PagerDuty shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1028% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PagerDuty shares, roughly 103 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 PagerDuty.
