Shorting Sprout Social shares

There are currently 1.8 million Sprout Social shares held short by investors – that's known as Sprout Social's "short interest". This figure is 5.4% down from 1.9 million last month.

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

Sprout Social's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sprout Social's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sprout Social shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sprout Social shares traded daily (recently around 357971.28309572). Sprout Social's SIR currently stands at 4.91. In other words for every 100,000 Sprout Social shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4910 shares are currently held short.

However Sprout Social's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sprout Social shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sprout Social shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sprout Social's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sprout Social shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0401% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sprout Social shares, roughly 40 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 Sprout Social.
