There are currently 2.0 million AECOM stocks held short by investors – that's known as AECOM's "short interest". This figure is 28.5% up from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AECOM stocks can be evaluated.
AECOM's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
AECOM's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AECOM stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AECOM stocks traded daily (recently around 677444.63087248). AECOM's SIR currently stands at 2.98. In other words for every 100,000 AECOM stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2980 stocks are currently held short.
However AECOM's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AECOM stocks, or, against the total number of tradable AECOM stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AECOM's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 AECOM stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.015% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable AECOM stocks, roughly 15 stocks are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against AECOM.
