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

MeridianLink's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MeridianLink's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MeridianLink stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MeridianLink stocks traded daily (recently around 803473.33333333).

In this case MeridianLink's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 MeridianLink stocks in existence, roughly 0 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0118% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable MeridianLink stocks, roughly 12 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 MeridianLink.
