Shorting Roblox shares

There are currently 19.8 million Roblox shares held short by investors – that's known as Roblox's "short interest". This figure is 0.4% down from 19.9 million last month.

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

Roblox's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Roblox's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Roblox shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Roblox shares traded daily (recently around 6.8 million). Roblox's SIR currently stands at 2.93. In other words for every 100,000 Roblox shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2930 shares are currently held short.

However Roblox's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Roblox shares, or, against the total number of tradable Roblox shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Roblox's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Roblox shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0693% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Roblox shares, roughly 69 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 Roblox.
