There are currently 2.9 million Frontdoor stocks held short by investors – that's known as Frontdoor's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% up from 2.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Frontdoor stocks can be evaluated.
Frontdoor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Frontdoor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Frontdoor stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Frontdoor stocks traded daily (recently around 397004.86111111). Frontdoor's SIR currently stands at 7.2. In other words for every 100,000 Frontdoor stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 7200 stocks are currently held short.
However Frontdoor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Frontdoor stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Frontdoor stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Frontdoor's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Frontdoor stocks in existence, roughly 30 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0334% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Frontdoor stocks, roughly 33 stocks are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Frontdoor.
