There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 18.1 million). Occidental Petroleum Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.27. In other words for every 100,000 Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1270 shares are currently held short.

However Occidental Petroleum Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Occidental Petroleum Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0388% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares, roughly 39 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 Occidental Petroleum Corporation.
