Shorting Weidai shares

There are currently 578,166 Weidai shares held short by investors – that's known as Weidai's "short interest". This figure is 37249.2% up from 1,548 last month.

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

Weidai's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Weidai's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Weidai shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Weidai shares traded daily (recently around 8.3 million). Weidai's SIR currently stands at 0.07. In other words for every 100,000 Weidai shares traded daily on the market, roughly 70 shares are currently held short.

However Weidai's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Weidai shares, or, against the total number of tradable Weidai shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Weidai's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Weidai shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0241% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Weidai shares, roughly 24 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 Weidai.
