Shorting Livongo Health shares
There are currently 8.2 million Livongo Health shares held short by investors – that's known as Livongo Health's "short interest". This figure is 17.8% down from 10.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Livongo Health shares can be evaluated.
Livongo Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Livongo Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Livongo Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Livongo Health shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). Livongo Health's SIR currently stands at 4.27. In other words for every 100,000 Livongo Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4270 shares are currently held short.
However Livongo Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Livongo Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable Livongo Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Livongo Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Livongo Health shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1807% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Livongo Health shares, roughly 181 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 Livongo Health.
