Shorting Guardant Health shares

There are currently 2.4 million Guardant Health shares held short by investors – that's known as Guardant Health's "short interest". This figure is 6.3% up from 2.2 million last month.

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

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

Guardant Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Guardant Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Guardant Health shares traded daily (recently around 894984.79087452). Guardant Health's SIR currently stands at 2.63. In other words for every 100,000 Guardant Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2630 shares are currently held short.

However Guardant Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Guardant Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable Guardant Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Guardant Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Guardant Health shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0344% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Guardant Health shares, roughly 34 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 Guardant Health.
