There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Helen of Troy shares can be evaluated.
Helen of Troy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Helen of Troy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Helen of Troy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Helen of Troy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Helen of Troy's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Helen of Troy shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1089% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Helen of Troy shares, roughly 109 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Helen of Troy.
