How Many Shares Of R Are Available?

Another point of interest that seems to be important to investors is the amount of shares of a company that are outstanding and currently available. At the moment, there are 53.33M shares of Ryder System, Inc. outstanding. Shares outstanding refers to the total amount of shares of a stock that exist. As far as the float goes, or the amount of shares that are actually available on the retail market, R has a float of 52.01M.

I also like to follow the short percentage of the float. After all, when a large portion of the float available for trading is sold short, the overall opinion among investors is that the stock is going to fall. As far as R, the percentage of the float that is sold short is 5.14%. Most traders believe that a concerning short percent of the float would be considered to be anything over 40%. However, I’ve found that a short ratio over 26% is probably going to be a a play that could prove to be very risky.
