SunTrust Banks Becomes #201 Most Shorted S&P 500 Component, Replacing Copart

SunTrust Banks Becomes #201 Most Shorted S&P 500 Component, Replacing Copart

The most recent short interest data has been released for the 08/31/2018 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.

STI: Insiders Vs. Shorts

The most recent short interest data was recently released for the 05/15/2018 settlement date, and SunTrust Banks Inc is the #116 most shorted of the S&P 500 components, based on 4.71 "days to cover." There are a number of ways to look at short data, but one metric that we find particularly useful is the "days to cover" because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares typically traded.
