There are currently 4.8 million R1 RCM stocks held short by investors – that's known as R1 RCM's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% up from 4.7 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting R1 RCM stocks can be evaluated.

R1 RCM's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

R1 RCM's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of R1 RCM stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of R1 RCM stocks traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). R1 RCM's SIR currently stands at 2.79. In other words for every 100,000 R1 RCM stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2790 stocks are currently held short.

However R1 RCM's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of R1 RCM stocks, or, against the total number of tradable R1 RCM stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case R1 RCM's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 R1 RCM stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0383% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable R1 RCM stocks, roughly 38 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against R1 RCM.
