There are currently 2.2 million Benefitfocus shares held short by investors – that's known as Benefitfocus's "short interest". This figure is 8.8% up from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Benefitfocus shares can be evaluated.
Benefitfocus's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Benefitfocus shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Benefitfocus shares traded daily (recently around 297341.77718833). Benefitfocus's SIR currently stands at 7.54. In other words for every 100,000 Benefitfocus shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7540 shares are currently held short.
However Benefitfocus's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Benefitfocus shares, or, against the total number of tradable Benefitfocus shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Benefitfocus's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Benefitfocus shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0901% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Benefitfocus shares, roughly 90 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 Benefitfocus.
