Shorting Qutoutiao shares

There are currently 8.7 million Qutoutiao shares held short by investors – that's known as Qutoutiao's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% down from 8.8 million last month.

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

Qutoutiao's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Qutoutiao's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Qutoutiao shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Qutoutiao shares traded daily (recently around 795168.18596171). Qutoutiao's SIR currently stands at 10.97. In other words for every 100,000 Qutoutiao shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10970 shares are currently held short.

However Qutoutiao's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Qutoutiao shares, or, against the total number of tradable Qutoutiao shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Qutoutiao's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Qutoutiao shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Qutoutiao shares, roughly 0 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 Qutoutiao.
