There are currently 2.4 million Avanos Medical shares held short by investors – that's known as Avanos Medical's "short interest". This figure is 19.4% up from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Avanos Medical shares can be evaluated.
Avanos Medical's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avanos Medical shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avanos Medical shares traded daily (recently around 272510.75514874). Avanos Medical's SIR currently stands at 8.74. In other words for every 100,000 Avanos Medical shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8740 shares are currently held short.
However Avanos Medical's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avanos Medical shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avanos Medical shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avanos Medical's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avanos Medical shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0571% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avanos Medical shares, roughly 57 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 Avanos Medical.
