There are currently 95.9 million AMC Entertainment stocks held short by investors – that's known as AMC Entertainment's "short interest". This figure is 11.8% up from 85.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AMC Entertainment stocks can be evaluated.
AMC Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
AMC Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AMC Entertainment stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AMC Entertainment stocks traded daily (recently around 92.3 million). AMC Entertainment's SIR currently stands at 1.04. In other words for every 100,000 AMC Entertainment stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1040 stocks are currently held short.
However AMC Entertainment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AMC Entertainment stocks, or, against the total number of tradable AMC Entertainment stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AMC Entertainment's short interest could be expressed as 0.19% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 AMC Entertainment stocks in existence, roughly 190 stocks are currently held short) or 0.1876% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable AMC Entertainment stocks, roughly 188 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 AMC Entertainment.
