There are currently 5.3 million CommScope Holding Company shares held short by investors – that's known as CommScope Holding Company's "short interest". This figure is 14.4% down from 6.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting CommScope Holding Company shares can be evaluated.
CommScope Holding Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CommScope Holding Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CommScope Holding Company shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). CommScope Holding Company's SIR currently stands at 2.83. In other words for every 100,000 CommScope Holding Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2830 shares are currently held short.
However CommScope Holding Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CommScope Holding Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable CommScope Holding Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CommScope Holding Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CommScope Holding Company shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0308% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CommScope Holding Company shares, roughly 31 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 CommScope Holding Company.
