There are currently 78,742 Astrotech Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Astrotech Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 25.2% down from 105,327 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Astrotech Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Astrotech Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Astrotech Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Astrotech Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 715836.36363636). Astrotech Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.11. In other words for every 100,000 Astrotech Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 110 shares are currently held short.
However Astrotech Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Astrotech Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Astrotech Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Astrotech Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Astrotech Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0046% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Astrotech Corporation shares, roughly 5 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Astrotech Corporation.

Astrotech Corporation's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 16 October 2017. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Astrotech Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Astrotech Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Astrotech Corporation's share price.
