Shorting SVMK shares

There are currently 4.5 million SVMK shares held short by investors – that's known as SVMK's "short interest". This figure is 10.2% up from 4.1 million last month.

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

SVMK's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SVMK's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SVMK shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SVMK shares traded daily (recently around 956482.27848101). SVMK's SIR currently stands at 4.74. In other words for every 100,000 SVMK shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4740 shares are currently held short.

However SVMK's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SVMK shares, or, against the total number of tradable SVMK shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SVMK's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SVMK shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0458% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SVMK shares, roughly 46 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 SVMK.

SVMK share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SVMK's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.35 up to $26.24. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SVMK.US volatility(beta: 1.5)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while SVMK's is 1.5013. This would suggest that SVMK's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
