There are currently 67.8 million Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares held short by investors – that's known as Bed Bath-and-Beyond's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% down from 72.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares can be evaluated.
Bed Bath-and-Beyond's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares traded daily (recently around 8.3 million). Bed Bath-and-Beyond's SIR currently stands at 8.21. In other words for every 100,000 Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8210 shares are currently held short.
However Bed Bath-and-Beyond's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bed Bath-and-Beyond's short interest could be expressed as 0.54% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares in existence, roughly 540 shares are currently held short) or 0.7084% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares, roughly 708 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 Bed Bath-and-Beyond.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bed Bath-and-Beyond shares which in turn could have impacted Bed Bath-and-Beyond's share price.
