Shorting Youdao shares

There are currently 1.6 million Youdao shares held short by investors – that's known as Youdao's "short interest". This figure is 25.6% down from 2.1 million last month.

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

Youdao's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Youdao's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Youdao shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Youdao shares traded daily (recently around 776035.96059113). Youdao's SIR currently stands at 2.03. In other words for every 100,000 Youdao shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2030 shares are currently held short.

However Youdao's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Youdao shares, or, against the total number of tradable Youdao shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Youdao's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Youdao shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Youdao shares, roughly 0 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 Youdao.
