Shorting Change Healthcare shares
There are currently 11.3 million Change Healthcare shares held short by investors – that's known as Change Healthcare's "short interest". This figure is 1% down from 11.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Change Healthcare shares can be evaluated.
Change Healthcare's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Change Healthcare's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Change Healthcare shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Change Healthcare shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Change Healthcare's SIR currently stands at 6.61. In other words for every 100,000 Change Healthcare shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6610 shares are currently held short.
However Change Healthcare's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Change Healthcare shares, or, against the total number of tradable Change Healthcare shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Change Healthcare's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Change Healthcare shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0454% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Change Healthcare shares, roughly 45 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 Change Healthcare.
