Shorting Vocera Communications shares

There are currently 4.4 million Vocera Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Vocera Communications's "short interest". This figure is 12.1% up from 3.9 million last month.

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

Vocera Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vocera Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vocera Communications shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vocera Communications shares traded daily (recently around 282992.57362356). Vocera Communications's SIR currently stands at 15.62. In other words for every 100,000 Vocera Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15620 shares are currently held short.

However Vocera Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vocera Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vocera Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vocera Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vocera Communications shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1313% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vocera Communications shares, roughly 131 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Vocera Communications.
