There are currently 3.8 million Upwork shares held short by investors – that's known as Upwork's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% down from 4.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Upwork shares can be evaluated.
Upwork's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Upwork shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Upwork shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). Upwork's SIR currently stands at 1.78. In other words for every 100,000 Upwork shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1780 shares are currently held short.
However Upwork's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Upwork shares, or, against the total number of tradable Upwork shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Upwork's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Upwork shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0395% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Upwork 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 Upwork.

We're not expecting Upwork to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Upwork's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.14 up to $21.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Upwork's is 1.5618. This would suggest that Upwork's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
