A.O. Smith's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of A.O. Smith shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of A.O. Smith shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). A.O. Smith's SIR currently stands at 3.2. In other words for every 100,000 A.O. Smith shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3200 shares are currently held short.
However A.O. Smith's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of A.O. Smith shares, or, against the total number of tradable A.O. Smith shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case A.O. Smith's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 A.O. Smith shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0285% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable A.O. Smith shares, roughly 29 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 A.O. Smith.
