There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Evoqua Water Technologies shares can be evaluated.

Evoqua Water Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Evoqua Water Technologies's SIR currently stands at 2.37. In other words for every 100,000 Evoqua Water Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2370 shares are currently held short.

However Evoqua Water Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Evoqua Water Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Evoqua Water Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Evoqua Water Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Evoqua Water Technologies shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0196% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Evoqua Water Technologies shares, roughly 20 shares are currently held short).
