TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 31.2 million Occidental Petroleum shares held short by investors – that's known as Occidental Petroleum's "short interest". This figure is 31.9% up from 23.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Occidental Petroleum shares can be evaluated.
Occidental Petroleum's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Occidental Petroleum shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Occidental Petroleum shares traded daily (recently around 17.6 million). Occidental Petroleum's SIR currently stands at 1.77. In other words for every 100,000 Occidental Petroleum shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1770 shares are currently held short.
However Occidental Petroleum's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Occidental Petroleum shares, or, against the total number of tradable Occidental Petroleum shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Occidental Petroleum's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Occidental Petroleum shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0335% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Occidental Petroleum shares, roughly 34 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.
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Occidental Petroleum.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 44.66
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Occidental Petroleum's overall score of 44.66 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 93rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Occidental Petroleum is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 26.91/100
Occidental Petroleum's environmental score of 26.91 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Occidental Petroleum is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 15.82/100
Occidental Petroleum's social score of 15.82 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Occidental Petroleum is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 11.93/100
Occidental Petroleum's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Occidental Petroleum is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Occidental Petroleum scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Occidental Petroleum has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Occidental Petroleum shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Occidental Petroleum shares which in turn could have impacted Occidental Petroleum's share price.
