There are currently 17.2 million Teladoc Health shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 2.8% down from 17.7 million last month.

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

Short interest ratio (SIR)

Teladoc Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Teladoc Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Teladoc Health shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). Teladoc Health's SIR currently stands at 6.76. In other words for every 100,000 Teladoc Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6760 shares are currently held short.

However Teladoc Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Teladoc Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable Teladoc Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Teladoc Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Teladoc Health shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1127% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Teladoc Health shares, roughly 113 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 Teladoc Health.
