Shorting Snap shares

There are currently 49.4 million Snap shares held short by investors – that's known as Snap's "short interest". This figure is 8.3% down from 53.9 million last month.

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

Snap's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Snap's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Snap shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Snap shares traded daily (recently around 15.2 million). Snap's SIR currently stands at 3.26. In other words for every 100,000 Snap shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3260 shares are currently held short.

However Snap's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Snap shares, or, against the total number of tradable Snap shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Snap's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Snap shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0434% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Snap shares, roughly 43 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 Snap.

Snap share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Snap's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.61 up to $73.59. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SNAP.US volatility(beta: 1.27)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 Snap's is 1.269. This would suggest that Snap's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
