Shorting HC2 shares

There are currently 3.0 million HC2 shares held short by investors – that's known as HC2's "short interest". This figure is 6% down from 3.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting HC2 shares can be evaluated.

HC2's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

HC2's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of HC2 shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of HC2 shares traded daily (recently around 307417.36896197). HC2's SIR currently stands at 9.73. In other words for every 100,000 HC2 shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9730 shares are currently held short.

However HC2's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of HC2 shares, or, against the total number of tradable HC2 shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case HC2's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 HC2 shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0639% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable HC2 shares, roughly 64 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 HC2.
