Shorting Playtika Holding shares

There are currently 13.5 million Playtika Holding shares held short by investors – that's known as Playtika Holding's "short interest". This figure is 9.6% up from 12.3 million last month.

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

Playtika Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Playtika Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Playtika Holding shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Playtika Holding shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Playtika Holding's SIR currently stands at 9.93. In other words for every 100,000 Playtika Holding shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9930 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Playtika Holding's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Playtika Holding's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Playtika Holding shares, or, against the total number of tradable Playtika Holding shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Playtika Holding's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Playtika Holding shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.1595% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Playtika Holding shares, roughly 160 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 Playtika Holding.
