There are currently 1.6 million Zovio shares held short by investors – that's known as Zovio's "short interest". This figure is 9.8% up from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Zovio shares can be evaluated.
Zovio's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zovio shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zovio shares traded daily (recently around 464185.55240793). Zovio's SIR currently stands at 3.53. In other words for every 100,000 Zovio shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3530 shares are currently held short.
However Zovio's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zovio shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zovio shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zovio's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zovio shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.052% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zovio shares, roughly 52 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 Zovio.

Over the last 12 months, Zovio's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.31 up to $7.34. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
