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

Ceridian HCM Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ceridian HCM Holding's SIR currently stands at 11.67. In other words for every 100,000 Ceridian HCM Holding shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11670 shares are currently held short.

However Ceridian HCM Holding's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ceridian HCM Holding shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ceridian HCM Holding shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ceridian HCM Holding's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ceridian HCM Holding shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0676% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ceridian HCM Holding shares, roughly 68 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 Ceridian HCM Holding.
