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

In other words for every 100,000 Ingles Markets Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12810 shares are currently held short.
However Ingles Markets Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ingles Markets Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ingles Markets Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ingles Markets Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ingles Markets Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0918% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ingles Markets Incorporated shares, roughly 92 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 Ingles Markets Incorporated.
