Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts stocks traded daily (recently around 597144.64285714).

In this case Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts stocks in existence, roughly 30 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0253% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts stocks, roughly 25 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 Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts.
