Shorting Molina Healthcare shares

There are currently 1.2 million Molina Healthcare shares held short by investors – that's known as Molina Healthcare's "short interest". This figure is 7.4% up from 1.1 million last month.

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

Molina Healthcare's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Molina Healthcare's SIR currently stands at 4.51. In other words for every 100,000 Molina Healthcare shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4510 shares are currently held short.

However Molina Healthcare's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Molina Healthcare shares, or, against the total number of tradable Molina Healthcare shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Molina Healthcare's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Molina Healthcare shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0211% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Molina Healthcare shares, roughly 21 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 Molina Healthcare.
