Shorting Nuance Communications shares
There are currently 41.2 million Nuance Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Nuance Communications's "short interest". This figure is 0.1% down from 41.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Nuance Communications shares can be evaluated.
Nuance Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Nuance Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nuance Communications shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nuance Communications shares traded daily (recently around 6.7 million). Nuance Communications's SIR currently stands at 6.18. In other words for every 100,000 Nuance Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6180 shares are currently held short.
However Nuance Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nuance Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nuance Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nuance Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nuance Communications shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1453% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nuance Communications shares, roughly 145 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 Nuance Communications.
