Shorting PubMatic shares

There are currently 2.4 million PubMatic shares held short by investors – that's known as PubMatic's "short interest". This figure is 23.4% up from 2.0 million last month.

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

PubMatic's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PubMatic's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PubMatic shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PubMatic shares traded daily (recently around 933875.38461538). PubMatic's SIR currently stands at 2.6. In other words for every 100,000 PubMatic shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2600 shares are currently held short.

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

However PubMatic's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PubMatic shares, or, against the total number of tradable PubMatic shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PubMatic's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PubMatic shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.3551% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PubMatic shares, roughly 355 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 PubMatic.
