Shorting Health Catalyst shares

There are currently 7.2 million Health Catalyst shares held short by investors – that's known as Health Catalyst's "short interest". This figure is 6.5% up from 6.7 million last month.

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

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

Health Catalyst's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Health Catalyst shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Health Catalyst shares traded daily (recently around 675119.1509434). Health Catalyst's SIR currently stands at 10.6. In other words for every 100,000 Health Catalyst shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10600 shares are currently held short.

However Health Catalyst's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Health Catalyst shares, or, against the total number of tradable Health Catalyst shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Health Catalyst's short interest could be expressed as 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Health Catalyst shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0.2478% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Health Catalyst shares, roughly 248 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 Health Catalyst.
