There are currently 11.6 million Advanced Disposal Services stocks held short by investors – that's known as Advanced Disposal Services's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% up from 11.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Advanced Disposal Services stocks can be evaluated.

However Advanced Disposal Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Advanced Disposal Services stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Advanced Disposal Services stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Advanced Disposal Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Advanced Disposal Services stocks in existence, roughly 130 stocks are currently held short) or 0.1579% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Advanced Disposal Services stocks, roughly 158 stocks are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the stock price and a discouraging interest in betting against Advanced Disposal Services.
