Shorting Phunware shares

There are currently 4.1 million Phunware shares held short by investors – that's known as Phunware's "short interest". This figure is 12.3% up from 3.7 million last month.

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

Phunware's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Phunware's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Phunware shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Phunware shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Phunware's SIR currently stands at 3.44. In other words for every 100,000 Phunware shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3440 shares are currently held short.

However Phunware's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Phunware shares, or, against the total number of tradable Phunware shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Phunware's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Phunware shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0964% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Phunware shares, roughly 96 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 Phunware.
