TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.0 million Service Properties Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Service Properties Trust's "short interest". This figure is 0.4% down from 4.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Service Properties Trust shares can be evaluated.
Service Properties Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Service Properties Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Service Properties Trust shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Service Properties Trust's SIR currently stands at 3.25. In other words for every 100,000 Service Properties Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3250 shares are currently held short.
However Service Properties Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Service Properties Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Service Properties Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Service Properties Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Service Properties Trust shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0337% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Service Properties Trust shares, roughly 34 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 Service Properties Trust.
