Shorting Allied Healthcare Products shares

There are currently 411,099 Allied Healthcare Products shares held short by investors – that's known as Allied Healthcare Products's "short interest". This figure is 5% down from 432,651 last month.

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

Allied Healthcare Products's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Allied Healthcare Products's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Allied Healthcare Products shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Allied Healthcare Products shares traded daily (recently around 604557.35294118). Allied Healthcare Products's SIR currently stands at 0.68. In other words for every 100,000 Allied Healthcare Products shares traded daily on the market, roughly 680 shares are currently held short.

However Allied Healthcare Products's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Allied Healthcare Products shares, or, against the total number of tradable Allied Healthcare Products shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Allied Healthcare Products's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Allied Healthcare Products shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1333% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Allied Healthcare Products shares, roughly 133 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 Allied Healthcare Products.
