Uber share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Uber's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$32.9 up to US$64.05. 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 Uber's is 1.322. This would suggest that Uber's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

Shorting Uber shares

There are currently 84.1 million Uber shares held short by investors – that's known as Uber's "short interest". This figure is 5.7% up from 79.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Uber shares can be evaluated.

Uber's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Uber's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Uber shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Uber shares traded daily (recently around 29.4 million). Uber's SIR currently stands at 2.86. In other words for every 100,000 Uber shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2860 shares are currently held short.

However Uber's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Uber shares, or, against the total number of tradable Uber shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Uber's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Uber shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.048% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Uber 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 Uber.
