Shorting SecureWorks shares

There are currently 938,756 SecureWorks shares held short by investors – that's known as SecureWorks's "short interest". This figure is 0% up from 938,349 last month.

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

SecureWorks's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SecureWorks's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SecureWorks shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SecureWorks shares traded daily (recently around 89575.954198473). SecureWorks's SIR currently stands at 10.48. In other words for every 100,000 SecureWorks shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10480 shares are currently held short.

However SecureWorks's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SecureWorks shares, or, against the total number of tradable SecureWorks shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SecureWorks's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SecureWorks shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.1048% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SecureWorks shares, roughly 105 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 SecureWorks.
