Shorting Waitr shares

There are currently 17.0 million Waitr shares held short by investors – that's known as Waitr's "short interest". This figure is 11.6% down from 19.2 million last month.

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

Waitr's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Waitr's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Waitr shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Waitr shares traded daily (recently around 5.6 million). Waitr's SIR currently stands at 3.03. In other words for every 100,000 Waitr shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3030 shares are currently held short.

However Waitr's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Waitr shares, or, against the total number of tradable Waitr shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Waitr's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Waitr shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1881% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Waitr shares, roughly 188 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 Waitr.
