Shorting Zovio shares

There are currently 752,807 Zovio shares held short by investors – that's known as Zovio's "short interest". This figure is 10.2% down from 838,151 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)

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 86133.52402746). Zovio's SIR currently stands at 8.74. In other words for every 100,000 Zovio shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8740 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 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zovio shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0236% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zovio shares, roughly 24 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 Zovio.

ZVO.US volatility(beta: 1.35)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Zovio's is 1.3513. This would suggest that Zovio's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
