Shorting Snowflake shares

There are currently 10.9 million Snowflake shares held short by investors – that's known as Snowflake's "short interest". This figure is 3.3% down from 11.3 million last month.

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

Snowflake's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Snowflake's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Snowflake shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Snowflake shares traded daily (recently around 4.9 million). Snowflake's SIR currently stands at 2.21. In other words for every 100,000 Snowflake shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2210 shares are currently held short.

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

However Snowflake's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Snowflake shares, or, against the total number of tradable Snowflake shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Snowflake's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Snowflake shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0542% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Snowflake shares, roughly 54 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 Snowflake.
