Shorting Five9 shares
There are currently 3.2 million Five9 shares held short by investors – that's known as Five9's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% down from 3.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Five9 shares can be evaluated.
Five9's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Five9's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Five9 shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Five9 shares traded daily (recently around 649135.36585366). Five9's SIR currently stands at 4.92. In other words for every 100,000 Five9 shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4920 shares are currently held short.
However Five9's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Five9 shares, or, against the total number of tradable Five9 shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Five9's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Five9 shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0481% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Five9 shares, roughly 48 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 Five9.
