Shorting Palantir Technologies shares

There are currently 61.1 million Palantir Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Palantir Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 32.7% down from 90.7 million last month.

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

Palantir Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Palantir Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Palantir Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Palantir Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 62.3 million). Palantir Technologies's SIR currently stands at 0.98. In other words for every 100,000 Palantir Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 980 shares are currently held short.

However Palantir Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Palantir Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Palantir Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Palantir Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Palantir Technologies shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0417% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Palantir Technologies shares, roughly 42 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 Palantir Technologies.
