There are currently 13.7 million Chewy stocks held short by investors – that's known as Chewy's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% down from 13.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Chewy stocks can be evaluated.
Chewy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Chewy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chewy stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chewy stocks traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Chewy's SIR currently stands at 7.44. In other words for every 100,000 Chewy stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 7440 stocks are currently held short.
However Chewy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chewy stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Chewy stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chewy's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Chewy stocks in existence, roughly 30 stocks are currently held short) or 0.1561% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Chewy stocks, roughly 156 stocks are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Chewy.
