There are currently 61.3 million Uber Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Uber Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 3.4% down from 63.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Uber Technologies shares can be evaluated.
Uber Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Uber Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Uber Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Uber Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 16.2 million). Uber Technologies's SIR currently stands at 3.79. In other words for every 100,000 Uber Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3790 shares are currently held short.
However Uber Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Uber Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Uber Technologies shares (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 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Uber Technologies shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0342% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Uber Technologies shares, roughly 34 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Uber Technologies.

Uber Technologies share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Uber Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.39 up to $64.05. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Uber Technologies's is 1.5456. This would suggest that Uber Technologies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
