Shorting Skillz shares

There are currently 61.0 million Skillz shares held short by investors – that's known as Skillz's "short interest". This figure is 12.9% up from 54.0 million last month.

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

Skillz's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Skillz's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Skillz shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Skillz shares traded daily (recently around 18.1 million). Skillz's SIR currently stands at 3.36. In other words for every 100,000 Skillz shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3360 shares are currently held short.

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

However Skillz's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Skillz shares, or, against the total number of tradable Skillz shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Skillz's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Skillz shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.2167% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Skillz shares, roughly 217 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 Skillz.
