Shorting Limelight Networks shares

There are currently 9.4 million Limelight Networks shares held short by investors – that's known as Limelight Networks's "short interest". This figure is 14.3% down from 11.0 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 SIR currently stands at 4.35. In other words for every 100,000 Limelight Networks shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4350 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 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Limelight Networks shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0778% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Limelight Networks shares, roughly 78 shares are currently held short).
