There are currently 3.7 million LifeStance Health Group shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 17.5% up from 3.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting LifeStance Health Group shares can be evaluated.

Short interest ratio (SIR)

LifeStance Health Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LifeStance Health Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LifeStance Health Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). LifeStance Health Group's SIR currently stands at 3.38. In other words for every 100,000 LifeStance Health Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3380 shares are currently held short.

However LifeStance Health Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LifeStance Health Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable LifeStance Health Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LifeStance Health Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LifeStance Health Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.053% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LifeStance Health Group shares, roughly 53 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 LifeStance Health Group.
