Shorting Playtika Holding shares
There are currently 14.3 million Playtika Holding shares held short by investors – that's known as Playtika Holding's "short interest". This figure is 6.9% up from 13.4 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 1.1 million). Playtika Holding's SIR currently stands at 12.64. In other words for every 100,000 Playtika Holding shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12640 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 0.1686% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Playtika Holding shares, roughly 169 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Playtika Holding.
