Shorting Sumo Logic shares

There are currently 2.4 million Sumo Logic shares held short by investors – that's known as Sumo Logic's "short interest". This figure is up from 0 last month.

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

Sumo Logic's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sumo Logic's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sumo Logic shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sumo Logic shares traded daily (recently around 3.6 million). Sumo Logic's SIR currently stands at 0.68. In other words for every 100,000 Sumo Logic shares traded daily on the market, roughly 680 shares are currently held short.

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

However Sumo Logic's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sumo Logic shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sumo Logic shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sumo Logic's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sumo Logic shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.032% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sumo Logic shares, roughly 32 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 Sumo Logic.
