Shorting Livent Corporation shares

There are currently 23.6 million Livent Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Livent Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% down from 23.7 million last month.

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

Livent Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Livent Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Livent Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Livent Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.9 million). Livent Corporation's SIR currently stands at 8.19. In other words for every 100,000 Livent Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8190 shares are currently held short.

However Livent Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Livent Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Livent Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Livent Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Livent Corporation shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.1622% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Livent Corporation shares, roughly 162 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 Livent Corporation.
