Shorting Expedia Group shares
There are currently 12.5 million Expedia Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Expedia Group's "short interest". This figure is 7.8% down from 13.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Expedia Group shares can be evaluated.
Expedia Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Expedia Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Expedia Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Expedia Group shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). Expedia Group's SIR currently stands at 5.14. In other words for every 100,000 Expedia Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5140 shares are currently held short.
However Expedia Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Expedia Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Expedia Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Expedia Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Expedia Group shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1129% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Expedia Group shares, roughly 113 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 Expedia Group.
