TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 12.2 million Apache Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Apache Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 15% down from 14.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Apache Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Apache Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Apache Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Apache Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 7.0 million). Apache Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.74. In other words for every 100,000 Apache Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1740 shares are currently held short.
However Apache Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Apache Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Apache Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Apache Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Apache Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.044% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Apache Corporation shares, roughly 44 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 Apache Corporation.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Apache Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Apache Corporation's share price.
