Shorting Herbalife Nutrition shares

There are currently 6.3 million Herbalife Nutrition shares held short by investors – that's known as Herbalife Nutrition's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% up from 6.3 million last month.

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

Herbalife Nutrition's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Herbalife Nutrition's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Herbalife Nutrition shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Herbalife Nutrition shares traded daily (recently around 890875.31734838). Herbalife Nutrition's SIR currently stands at 7.09. In other words for every 100,000 Herbalife Nutrition shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7090 shares are currently held short.

However Herbalife Nutrition's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Herbalife Nutrition shares, or, against the total number of tradable Herbalife Nutrition shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Herbalife Nutrition's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Herbalife Nutrition shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0811% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Herbalife Nutrition shares, roughly 81 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 Herbalife Nutrition.
