There are currently 93,994 National HealthCare Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as National HealthCare Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 14.2% down from 109,589 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting National HealthCare Corporation shares can be evaluated.
National HealthCare Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of National HealthCare Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of National HealthCare Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 26627.195467422). National HealthCare Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.53. In other words for every 100,000 National HealthCare Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3530 shares are currently held short.
However National HealthCare Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of National HealthCare Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable National HealthCare Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case National HealthCare Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 National HealthCare Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0076% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable National HealthCare Corporation shares, roughly 8 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 National HealthCare Corporation.
