Shorting ACI Worldwide shares
There are currently 2.3 million ACI Worldwide shares held short by investors – that's known as ACI Worldwide's "short interest". This figure is 14.8% down from 2.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ACI Worldwide shares can be evaluated.
ACI Worldwide's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
ACI Worldwide's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ACI Worldwide shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ACI Worldwide shares traded daily (recently around 474894.10526316). ACI Worldwide's SIR currently stands at 4.75. In other words for every 100,000 ACI Worldwide shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4750 shares are currently held short.
However ACI Worldwide's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ACI Worldwide shares, or, against the total number of tradable ACI Worldwide shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ACI Worldwide's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ACI Worldwide shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0209% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ACI Worldwide shares, roughly 21 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 ACI Worldwide.

Have ACI Worldwide's shares ever split?
ACI Worldwide's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 10 July 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ACI Worldwide shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ACI Worldwide shares which in turn could have impacted ACI Worldwide's share price.
ACI Worldwide share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, ACI Worldwide's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.55 up to $43.2265. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while ACI Worldwide's is 1.1404. This would suggest that ACI Worldwide's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
