Short interest | Positive
Short interest is moderate for M with between 5 and 10% of shares outstanding currently on loan. However, this was an improvement in sentiment as investors who seek to profit from falling equity prices reduced their short positions on September 17.
ETF/Index ownership | Neutral
ETF activity is neutral. The net inflows of $7.90 billion over the last one-month into ETFs that hold M are not among the highest of the last year and have been slowing.
PMI by IHS Markit | Negative
According to the latest IHS Markit Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) data, output in the Consumer Services sector is rising. The rate of growth is weak relative to the trend shown over the past year, however, and is easing.
Credit default swap | Neutral
The current level displays a neutral indicator. Although M credit default swap spreads are rising, indicating the market's more negative perception of the company's credit worthiness, they are still comfortably within the range of the last three years.
