Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's SIR currently stands at 2.34.

In this case Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0289% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares, roughly 29 shares are currently held short).
