Shorting Acadia Healthcare Company shares

There are currently 3.1 million Acadia Healthcare Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Acadia Healthcare Company's "short interest". This figure is 12.4% up from 2.8 million last month.

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

Acadia Healthcare Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Acadia Healthcare Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Acadia Healthcare Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Acadia Healthcare Company shares traded daily (recently around 374670.46004843). Acadia Healthcare Company's SIR currently stands at 8.26. In other words for every 100,000 Acadia Healthcare Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8260 shares are currently held short.

However Acadia Healthcare Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Acadia Healthcare Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Acadia Healthcare Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Acadia Healthcare Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Acadia Healthcare Company shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.035% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Acadia Healthcare Company shares, roughly 35 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 Acadia Healthcare Company.
