Short Interest In Enphase Energy Declines 10.8%

The most recent short interest data has been released by the NASDAQ for the 05/15/2015 settlement date, which shows a 646,382 share decrease in total short interest for Enphase Energy Inc. (ENPH), to 5,321,090, a decrease of 10.83% since 04/30/2015. Total short interest is just one way to look at short data; another metric that we here at Dividend Channel find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares traded. The number of shares short is then compared to the average daily volume, in order to calculate the total number of trading days (at the average volume) it would take to close out all of the open short positions if every share traded represented a short position being closed. Average daily volume for ENPH at the 05/15/2015 settlement increased to 1,466,891, as compared to 544,939 at the 04/30/2015 report. That brought "days to cover" down to 3.63, a 66.87% decrease from the 10.95 days to cover calculated at the previous short interest data release.

A decreased "days to cover" value could indicate that short sellers are no longer expecting the same decline in stock price they once were, or it could also indicate a long bet elsewhere was closed where ENPH had been shorted as a hedge.
