Shorting ADT shares
There are currently 12.5 million ADT shares held short by investors – that's known as ADT's "short interest". This figure is 20.4% up from 10.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ADT shares can be evaluated.
ADT's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
ADT's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ADT shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ADT shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). ADT's SIR currently stands at 5.64. In other words for every 100,000 ADT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5640 shares are currently held short.
However ADT's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ADT shares, or, against the total number of tradable ADT shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ADT's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ADT shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0809% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ADT shares, roughly 81 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 ADT.
