There are currently 626,058 AdvanSix shares held short by investors – that's known as AdvanSix's "short interest". This figure is 12.5% down from 715,731 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AdvanSix shares can be evaluated.

AdvanSix's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AdvanSix's SIR currently stands at 3.13. In other words for every 100,000 AdvanSix shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3130 shares are currently held short.

However AdvanSix's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AdvanSix shares, or, against the total number of tradable AdvanSix shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AdvanSix's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AdvanSix shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0229% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AdvanSix shares, roughly 23 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 AdvanSix.
