Shorting Atlassian shares

There are currently 4.3 million Atlassian shares held short by investors – that's known as Atlassian's "short interest". This figure is 24.3% down from 5.7 million last month.

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

Atlassian's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Atlassian's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Atlassian shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Atlassian shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Atlassian's SIR currently stands at 2.48. In other words for every 100,000 Atlassian shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2480 shares are currently held short.

However Atlassian's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Atlassian shares, or, against the total number of tradable Atlassian shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Atlassian's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Atlassian shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0324% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Atlassian shares, roughly 32 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 Atlassian.
