Shorting Hutchison China MediTech shares

There are currently 829,953 Hutchison China MediTech shares held short by investors – that's known as Hutchison China MediTech's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% down from 848,568 last month.

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

Hutchison China MediTech's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Hutchison China MediTech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hutchison China MediTech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hutchison China MediTech shares traded daily (recently around 146118.48591549). Hutchison China MediTech's SIR currently stands at 5.68. In other words for every 100,000 Hutchison China MediTech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5680 shares are currently held short.

However Hutchison China MediTech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hutchison China MediTech shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hutchison China MediTech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hutchison China MediTech's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hutchison China MediTech shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hutchison China MediTech shares, roughly 0 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 Hutchison China MediTech.
