Shorting iRhythm Technologies shares

There are currently 3.4 million iRhythm Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as iRhythm Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 12.3% up from 3.0 million last month.

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

iRhythm Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

iRhythm Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of iRhythm Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of iRhythm Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 279846.40198511). iRhythm Technologies's SIR currently stands at 12.09. In other words for every 100,000 iRhythm Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12090 shares are currently held short.

However iRhythm Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of iRhythm Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable iRhythm Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case iRhythm Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 iRhythm Technologies shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.143% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable iRhythm Technologies shares, roughly 143 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 iRhythm Technologies.
