There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AMCON Distributing Company shares can be evaluated.
AMCON Distributing Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
AMCON Distributing Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AMCON Distributing Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AMCON Distributing Company shares traded daily (recently around 1346.9387755102).

However AMCON Distributing Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AMCON Distributing Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable AMCON Distributing Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AMCON Distributing Company's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AMCON Distributing Company shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0041% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AMCON Distributing Company shares, roughly 4 shares are currently held short).
