Shorting Azul S-A shares
There are currently 10.2 million Azul S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Azul S-A's "short interest". This figure is 0.4% up from 10.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Azul S-A shares can be evaluated.
Azul S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Azul S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Azul S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Azul S-A shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Azul S-A's SIR currently stands at 9.67. In other words for every 100,000 Azul S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9670 shares are currently held short.
However Azul S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Azul S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Azul S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Azul S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Azul S-A shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1114% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Azul S-A shares, roughly 111 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Azul S-A.

Azul S-A share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Azul S-A's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$10.53 up to US$29.45. 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 Azul S-A's is 1.7588. This would suggest that Azul S-A's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
