Shorting Evolent Health shares

There are currently 10.0 million Evolent Health shares held short by investors – that's known as Evolent Health's "short interest". This figure is 16.9% down from 12.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Evolent Health shares can be evaluated.

Evolent Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Evolent Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Evolent Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Evolent Health shares traded daily (recently around 964298.65384615). Evolent Health's SIR currently stands at 10.4. In other words for every 100,000 Evolent Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10400 shares are currently held short.

However Evolent Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Evolent Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable Evolent Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Evolent Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Evolent Health shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1282% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Evolent Health shares, roughly 128 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Evolent Health.
