There are currently 1.7 million Equity Commonwealth shares held short by investors – that's known as Equity Commonwealth's "short interest". This figure is 17.4% down from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Equity Commonwealth shares can be evaluated.

Equity Commonwealth's SIR currently stands at 2.28. In other words for every 100,000 Equity Commonwealth shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2280 shares are currently held short.
However Equity Commonwealth's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Equity Commonwealth shares, or, against the total number of tradable Equity Commonwealth shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Equity Commonwealth's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Equity Commonwealth shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0174% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Equity Commonwealth shares, roughly 17 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 Equity Commonwealth.
