How to short and sell Airbnb stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "ABNB.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 14.1 million Airbnb stocks held short by investors – that's known as Airbnb's "short interest". This figure is 12.4% up from 12.5 million last month.

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

Airbnb's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Airbnb's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Airbnb stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Airbnb stocks traded daily (recently around 6.9 million). Airbnb's SIR currently stands at 2.03. In other words for every 100,000 Airbnb stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2030 stocks are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Airbnb's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Airbnb's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Airbnb stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Airbnb stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Airbnb's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Airbnb stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0437% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Airbnb stocks, roughly 44 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Airbnb.
