There are currently 4.8 million Knight-Swift Transportation shares held short by investors – that's known as Knight-Swift Transportation's "short interest". This figure is 9.4% up from 4.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Knight-Swift Transportation shares can be evaluated.

However Knight-Swift Transportation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Knight-Swift Transportation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Knight-Swift Transportation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Knight-Swift Transportation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Knight-Swift Transportation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0297% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Knight-Swift Transportation shares, roughly 30 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Knight-Swift Transportation.
