Shorting LivaNova shares

There are currently 3.1 million LivaNova shares held short by investors – that's known as LivaNova's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% down from 3.1 million last month.

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

LivaNova's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

LivaNova's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LivaNova shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LivaNova shares traded daily (recently around 321899.16753382). LivaNova's SIR currently stands at 9.61. In other words for every 100,000 LivaNova shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9610 shares are currently held short.

However LivaNova's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LivaNova shares, or, against the total number of tradable LivaNova shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LivaNova's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LivaNova shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0729% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LivaNova shares, roughly 73 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 LivaNova.
