Shorting Lucira Health shares

There are currently 1.7 million Lucira Health shares held short by investors – that's known as Lucira Health's "short interest". This figure is 30.1% up from 1.3 million last month.

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

Lucira Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lucira Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lucira Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lucira Health shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Lucira Health's SIR currently stands at 1.47. In other words for every 100,000 Lucira Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1470 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Lucira Health's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Lucira Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lucira Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lucira Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lucira Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lucira Health shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0593% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lucira Health shares, roughly 59 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 Lucira Health.
