TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.9 million Parsons Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Parsons Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% down from 3.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Parsons Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Parsons Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Parsons Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Parsons Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 566478.42003854). Parsons Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.19. In other words for every 100,000 Parsons Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5190 shares are currently held short.
However Parsons Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Parsons Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Parsons Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Parsons Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Parsons Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.1126% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Parsons Corporation shares, roughly 113 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Parsons Corporation.
