There are currently 4.6 million Stericycle shares held short by investors – that's known as Stericycle's "short interest". This figure is 4.5% down from 4.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Stericycle shares can be evaluated.
Stericycle's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Stericycle shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Stericycle shares traded daily (recently around 421400.3652968). Stericycle's SIR currently stands at 10.95. In other words for every 100,000 Stericycle shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10950 shares are currently held short.
However Stericycle's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Stericycle shares, or, against the total number of tradable Stericycle shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Stericycle's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Stericycle shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0505% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Stericycle shares, roughly 51 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 Stericycle.

Total ESG risk: 32.41
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Stericycle's overall score of 32.41 (as at 10/01/2020) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 47th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Stericycle is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

We're not expecting Stericycle to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Stericycle's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 June 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Stericycle shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stericycle shares which in turn could have impacted Stericycle's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Stericycle's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.45 up to $67.6. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Stericycle's is 1.2074. This would suggest that Stericycle's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
