Shorting AdaptHealth shares

There are currently 3.3 million AdaptHealth shares held short by investors – that's known as AdaptHealth's "short interest". This figure is 54.3% up from 2.1 million last month.

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

AdaptHealth's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AdaptHealth's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AdaptHealth shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AdaptHealth shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). AdaptHealth's SIR currently stands at 2.25. In other words for every 100,000 AdaptHealth shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2250 shares are currently held short.

However AdaptHealth's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AdaptHealth shares, or, against the total number of tradable AdaptHealth shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AdaptHealth's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AdaptHealth shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0402% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AdaptHealth shares, roughly 40 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 AdaptHealth.
