There are currently 12.8 million Zoom Video Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Zoom Video Communications's "short interest". This figure is 57% up from 8.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Zoom Video Communications shares can be evaluated.
Zoom Video Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zoom Video Communications shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zoom Video Communications shares traded daily (recently around 16.4 million). Zoom Video Communications's SIR currently stands at 0.78. In other words for every 100,000 Zoom Video Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 780 shares are currently held short.
However Zoom Video Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zoom Video Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zoom Video Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zoom Video Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zoom Video Communications shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0661% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zoom Video Communications shares, roughly 66 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 Zoom Video Communications.
