How to short and sell Uber Technologies stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "UBER.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 69.9 million Uber Technologies stocks held short by investors – that's known as Uber Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% down from 76.1 million last month.

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

Uber Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Uber Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Uber Technologies stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Uber Technologies stocks traded daily (recently around 19.0 million). Uber Technologies's SIR currently stands at 3.68. In other words for every 100,000 Uber Technologies stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3680 stocks are currently held short.

However Uber Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Uber Technologies stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Uber Technologies stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Uber Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Uber Technologies stocks in existence, roughly 40 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0426% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Uber Technologies stocks, roughly 43 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 Uber Technologies.

Uber Technologies stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Uber Technologies's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $28.48 up to $64.05. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UBER.US volatility(beta: 1.56)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 Uber Technologies's is 1.559. This would suggest that Uber Technologies's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
