There are currently 16.5 million Limelight Networks shares held short by investors – that's known as Limelight Networks's "short interest". This figure is 5% up from 15.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Limelight Networks shares can be evaluated.
Limelight Networks's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Limelight Networks shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Limelight Networks shares traded daily (recently around 8.3 million). Limelight Networks's SIR currently stands at 1.98. In other words for every 100,000 Limelight Networks shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1980 shares are currently held short.
However Limelight Networks's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Limelight Networks shares, or, against the total number of tradable Limelight Networks shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Limelight Networks's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Limelight Networks shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.127% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Limelight Networks shares, roughly 127 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Limelight Networks.
