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

WW International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

WW International's SIR currently stands at 6.65. In other words for every 100,000 WW International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6650 shares are currently held short.

However WW International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WW International shares, or, against the total number of tradable WW International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WW International's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WW International shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0943% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WW International shares, roughly 94 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 WW International.
