Shorting Yext shares

There are currently 6.5 million Yext shares held short by investors – that's known as Yext's "short interest". This figure is 17.5% down from 7.9 million last month.

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

Yext's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Yext's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Yext shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Yext shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Yext's SIR currently stands at 6.34. In other words for every 100,000 Yext shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6340 shares are currently held short.

However Yext's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Yext shares, or, against the total number of tradable Yext shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Yext's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Yext shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0597% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Yext shares, roughly 60 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 Yext.

Yext share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Yext's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.01 up to $20.9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

YEXT.US volatility(beta: 1.41)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Yext's is 1.4076. This would suggest that Yext's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
