There are currently 3.8 million Shake Shack stocks held short by investors – that's known as Shake Shack's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% down from 3.9 million last month.

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

Shake Shack's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Shake Shack's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Shake Shack stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Shake Shack stocks traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Shake Shack's SIR currently stands at 3.06. In other words for every 100,000 Shake Shack stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3060 stocks are currently held short.

However Shake Shack's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Shake Shack stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Shake Shack stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Shake Shack's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Shake Shack stocks in existence, roughly 90 stocks are currently held short) or 0.1218% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Shake Shack stocks, roughly 122 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 Shake Shack.

SHAK.US volatility(beta: 1.74)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Shake Shack's is 1.7418. This would suggest that Shake Shack's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
