TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 8.0 million Workday shares held short by investors – that's known as Workday's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% up from 7.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Workday shares can be evaluated.
Workday's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Workday shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Workday shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Workday's SIR currently stands at 5.22. In other words for every 100,000 Workday shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5220 shares are currently held short.
However Workday's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Workday shares, or, against the total number of tradable Workday shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Workday's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Workday shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0424% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Workday shares, roughly 42 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Workday.
