Shorting Stericycle shares
There are currently 1.1 million Stericycle shares held short by investors – that's known as Stericycle's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% up from 1.1 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)
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 251866.12529002). Stericycle's SIR currently stands at 4.31. In other words for every 100,000 Stericycle shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4310 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 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Stericycle shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0119% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Stericycle shares, roughly 12 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 Stericycle.
