Shorting ADT shares

There are currently 12.1 million ADT shares held short by investors – that's known as ADT's "short interest". This figure is 15.4% down from 14.3 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 3.7 million). ADT's SIR currently stands at 3.22. In other words for every 100,000 ADT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3220 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 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ADT shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0756% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ADT shares, roughly 76 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 ADT.

ADT share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ADT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.2243 up to $12.9717. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ADT.US volatility(beta: 2.29)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while ADT's is 2.2873. This would suggest that ADT's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
