U.S. stock futures are sinking Friday as investors awaited an influx of data on U.S. GDP, manufacturing and consumer sentiment.

The most recent short interest data has been released by the NASDAQ for the 02/13/2015 settlement date, and we here at Dividend Channel like to sift through this fresh data and order the underlying components of the S&P 500 by "days to cover." There are a number of ways to look at short data, for example the total number of shares short; but one metric that we find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares typically traded. The number of shares short is then compared to the average daily volume, in order to calculate the total number of trading days it would take to close out all of the open short positions if every share traded represented a short position being closed.

The most recent short interest data has been released by the NASDAQ for the 02/13/2015 settlement date, which shows a 473,046 share decrease in total short interest for UIL Holding Corp , to 1,270,419, a decrease of 27.13% since 01/30/2015. Total short interest is just one way to look at short data; another metric that we here at Dividend Channel find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares traded.

The S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average slip from record highs on Thursday, but not by much in another day characterized by trading in a narrow bracket.

Total short interest is just one way to look at short data; another metric that we here at Dividend Channel find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares traded.
