There are currently 13.1 million Albertsons Companies shares held short by investors – that's known as Albertsons Companies's "short interest". This figure is 93.5% up from 6.7 million last month.

In this case Albertsons Companies's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Albertsons Companies shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0958% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Albertsons Companies shares, roughly 96 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 Albertsons Companies.
