Shorting Iron Mountain Incorporated shares
There are currently 30.3 million Iron Mountain Incorporated shares held short by investors – that's known as Iron Mountain Incorporated's "short interest". This figure is 9.3% down from 33.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Iron Mountain Incorporated shares can be evaluated.
Iron Mountain Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Iron Mountain Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 12.91. In other words for every 100,000 Iron Mountain Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12910 shares are currently held short.
However Iron Mountain Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Iron Mountain Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Iron Mountain Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Iron Mountain Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Iron Mountain Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1061% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Iron Mountain Incorporated shares, roughly 106 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 Iron Mountain Incorporated.
