Shorting Zynga shares
There are currently 74.8 million Zynga shares held short by investors – that's known as Zynga's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% down from 75.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Zynga shares can be evaluated.
Zynga's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Zynga's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zynga shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zynga shares traded daily (recently around 15.0 million). Zynga's SIR currently stands at 4.99. In other words for every 100,000 Zynga shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4990 shares are currently held short.
However Zynga's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zynga shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zynga shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zynga's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zynga shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0731% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zynga shares, roughly 73 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 Zynga.
