Shorting Liberty Latin America shares

There are currently 5.8 million Liberty Latin America shares held short by investors – that's known as Liberty Latin America's "short interest". This figure is 6.8% down from 6.2 million last month.

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

Liberty Latin America's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Liberty Latin America's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Liberty Latin America shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Liberty Latin America shares traded daily (recently around 876510.4387292). Liberty Latin America's SIR currently stands at 6.61. In other words for every 100,000 Liberty Latin America shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6610 shares are currently held short.

However Liberty Latin America's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Liberty Latin America shares, or, against the total number of tradable Liberty Latin America shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Liberty Latin America's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Liberty Latin America shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0378% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Liberty Latin America shares, roughly 38 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 Liberty Latin America.
