Short interest | Positive
Short interest is moderate for SVU with between 5 and 10% of shares outstanding currently on loan. The last change in the short interest score occurred more than 1 month ago and implies that there has been little change in sentiment among investors who seek to profit from falling equity prices.
ETF/Index ownership | Neutral
ETF activity is neutral. The net inflows of $2.30 billion over the last one-month into ETFs that hold SVU 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 | Positive
The current level displays a positive indicator. SVU credit default swap spreads are near the lowest level of the last three years and indicate the market's continued positive perception of the company's credit worthiness.
