TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.3 million Goosehead Insurance shares held short by investors – that's known as Goosehead Insurance's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% down from 1.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Goosehead Insurance shares can be evaluated.
Goosehead Insurance's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Goosehead Insurance shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Goosehead Insurance shares traded daily (recently around 188302.92825769). Goosehead Insurance's SIR currently stands at 6.83. In other words for every 100,000 Goosehead Insurance shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6830 shares are currently held short.
However Goosehead Insurance's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Goosehead Insurance shares, or, against the total number of tradable Goosehead Insurance shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Goosehead Insurance's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Goosehead Insurance shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.1027% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Goosehead Insurance shares, roughly 103 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 Goosehead Insurance.
