Shorting Shopify shares

There are currently 1.6 million Shopify shares held short by investors – that's known as Shopify's "short interest". This figure is 7.8% down from 1.7 million last month.

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

Shopify's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Shopify's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Shopify shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Shopify shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Shopify's SIR currently stands at 0.86. In other words for every 100,000 Shopify shares traded daily on the market, roughly 860 shares are currently held short.

However Shopify's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Shopify shares, or, against the total number of tradable Shopify shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Shopify's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Shopify shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0264% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Shopify shares, roughly 26 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 Shopify.

Shopify share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Shopify's shares have ranged in value from as little as $282.08 up to $1146.91. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SHOP.US volatility(beta: 1.37)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Shopify's is 1.3657. This would suggest that Shopify's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
