Shorting NuVasive shares
There are currently 3.6 million NuVasive shares held short by investors – that's known as NuVasive's "short interest". This figure is 2.6% up from 3.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NuVasive shares can be evaluated.
NuVasive's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
NuVasive's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NuVasive shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NuVasive shares traded daily (recently around 555335.15625). NuVasive's SIR currently stands at 6.4. In other words for every 100,000 NuVasive shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6400 shares are currently held short.
However NuVasive's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NuVasive shares, or, against the total number of tradable NuVasive shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NuVasive's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NuVasive shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0693% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NuVasive shares, roughly 69 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 NuVasive.
