Shorting Spotify Technology S-A shares

There are currently 3.4 million Spotify Technology S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Spotify Technology S-A's "short interest". This figure is 18.7% up from 2.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Spotify Technology S-A shares can be evaluated.

Spotify Technology S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Spotify Technology S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Spotify Technology S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Spotify Technology S-A shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Spotify Technology S-A's SIR currently stands at 2.35. In other words for every 100,000 Spotify Technology S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2350 shares are currently held short.

However Spotify Technology S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Spotify Technology S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Spotify Technology S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Spotify Technology S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Spotify Technology S-A shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0268% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Spotify Technology S-A shares, roughly 27 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 Spotify Technology S-A.
