There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hilton Worldwide stocks can be evaluated.
Hilton Worldwide's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Hilton Worldwide's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hilton Worldwide stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hilton Worldwide stocks traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Hilton Worldwide's SIR currently stands at 4.16. In other words for every 100,000 Hilton Worldwide stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4160 stocks are currently held short.

In this case Hilton Worldwide's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Hilton Worldwide stocks in existence, roughly 30 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0307% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Hilton Worldwide stocks, roughly 31 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 Hilton Worldwide.
