There are currently 1.4 million Ambarella stocks held short by investors – that's known as Ambarella's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% down from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ambarella stocks can be evaluated.
Ambarella's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Ambarella's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ambarella stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ambarella stocks traded daily (recently around 527886.39705882). Ambarella's SIR currently stands at 2.72. In other words for every 100,000 Ambarella stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2720 stocks are currently held short.
However Ambarella's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ambarella stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Ambarella stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ambarella's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Ambarella stocks in existence, roughly 40 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0416% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Ambarella stocks, roughly 42 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 Ambarella.
