Shorting American Airlines Group shares

There are currently 90.2 million American Airlines Group shares held short by investors – that's known as American Airlines Group's "short interest". This figure is 7.3% down from 97.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting American Airlines Group shares can be evaluated.

American Airlines Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

American Airlines Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of American Airlines Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of American Airlines Group shares traded daily (recently around 31.9 million). American Airlines Group's SIR currently stands at 2.83. In other words for every 100,000 American Airlines Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2830 shares are currently held short.

However American Airlines Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of American Airlines Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable American Airlines Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case American Airlines Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 American Airlines Group shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1405% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable American Airlines Group shares, roughly 141 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 American Airlines Group.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like American Airlines Group.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like American Airlines Group is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

American Airlines Group's environmental score

Environmental score: 12.43/100

American Airlines Group's environmental score of 12.43 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that American Airlines Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. American Airlines Group scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that American Airlines Group has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

American Airlines Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, American Airlines Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.63 up to $26.09. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AAL.US volatility(beta: 1.71)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while American Airlines Group's is 1.7095. This would suggest that American Airlines Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
