Shorting Roblox Corporation shares

There are currently 19.8 million Roblox Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Roblox Corporation'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 Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Roblox Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

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

However Roblox Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Roblox Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Roblox Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Roblox Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Roblox Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0714% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Roblox Corporation shares, roughly 71 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 Corporation.
