There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Jack Henry-and-Associates shares can be evaluated.

Jack Henry-and-Associates's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Jack Henry-and-Associates's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Jack Henry-and-Associates shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Jack Henry-and-Associates shares traded daily (recently around 391636.37992832).

However Jack Henry-and-Associates's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Jack Henry-and-Associates shares, or, against the total number of tradable Jack Henry-and-Associates shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Jack Henry-and-Associates's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Jack Henry-and-Associates shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.039% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Jack Henry-and-Associates shares, roughly 39 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 Jack Henry-and-Associates.

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