Shorting GoHealth shares

There are currently 5.0 million GoHealth shares held short by investors – that's known as GoHealth's "short interest". This figure is 62.9% up from 3.1 million last month.

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

GoHealth's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

GoHealth's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GoHealth shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GoHealth shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). GoHealth's SIR currently stands at 2. In other words for every 100,000 GoHealth shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2000 shares are currently held short.

However GoHealth's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GoHealth shares, or, against the total number of tradable GoHealth shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GoHealth's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GoHealth shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.105% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GoHealth shares, roughly 105 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 GoHealth.
