TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 9.8 million Appian Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Appian Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% down from 10.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Appian Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Appian Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Appian Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Appian Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 659311.79624665). Appian Corporation's SIR currently stands at 14.92. In other words for every 100,000 Appian Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 14920 shares are currently held short.
However Appian Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Appian Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Appian Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Appian Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Appian Corporation shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.3763% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Appian Corporation shares, roughly 376 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Appian Corporation.
