There are currently 5.1 million Archrock shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 18.8% up from 4.3 million last month.

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

Short interest ratio (SIR)

Archrock's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Archrock shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Archrock shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Archrock's SIR currently stands at 5.04. In other words for every 100,000 Archrock shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5040 shares are currently held short.

However Archrock's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Archrock shares, or, against the total number of tradable Archrock shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Archrock's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Archrock shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0545% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Archrock shares, roughly 55 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Archrock.
