There are currently 3.5 million Beacon Roofing Supply shares held short by investors – that's known as Beacon Roofing Supply's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% down from 3.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Beacon Roofing Supply shares can be evaluated.
Beacon Roofing Supply's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Beacon Roofing Supply shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Beacon Roofing Supply shares traded daily (recently around 619668.07017544). Beacon Roofing Supply's SIR currently stands at 5.7. In other words for every 100,000 Beacon Roofing Supply shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5700 shares are currently held short.
However Beacon Roofing Supply's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Beacon Roofing Supply shares, or, against the total number of tradable Beacon Roofing Supply shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Beacon Roofing Supply's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Beacon Roofing Supply shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0646% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Beacon Roofing Supply shares, roughly 65 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Beacon Roofing Supply.

Beacon Roofing Supply's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 13 June 2006. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Beacon Roofing Supply shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Beacon Roofing Supply shares which in turn could have impacted Beacon Roofing Supply's share price.
