Shorting Upland Software shares

There are currently 2.6 million Upland Software shares held short by investors – that's known as Upland Software's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% down from 2.7 million last month.

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

Upland Software's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Upland Software's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Upland Software shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Upland Software shares traded daily (recently around 200838.19018405). Upland Software's SIR currently stands at 13.04. In other words for every 100,000 Upland Software shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13040 shares are currently held short.

However Upland Software's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Upland Software shares, or, against the total number of tradable Upland Software shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Upland Software's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Upland Software shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0974% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Upland Software shares, roughly 97 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Upland Software.
