Shorting SmileDirectClub shares

There are currently 29.0 million SmileDirectClub shares held short by investors – that's known as SmileDirectClub's "short interest". This figure is 1.5% up from 28.5 million last month.

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

SmileDirectClub's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SmileDirectClub's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SmileDirectClub shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SmileDirectClub shares traded daily (recently around 4.9 million). SmileDirectClub's SIR currently stands at 5.92. In other words for every 100,000 SmileDirectClub shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5920 shares are currently held short.

However SmileDirectClub's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SmileDirectClub shares, or, against the total number of tradable SmileDirectClub shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SmileDirectClub's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SmileDirectClub shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.2775% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SmileDirectClub shares, roughly 278 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against SmileDirectClub.
