There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Manhattan Associates shares can be evaluated.

Manhattan Associates's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Manhattan Associates's SIR currently stands at 6.58. In other words for every 100,000 Manhattan Associates shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6580 shares are currently held short.

However Manhattan Associates's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Manhattan Associates shares, or, against the total number of tradable Manhattan Associates shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Manhattan Associates's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Manhattan Associates shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0496% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Manhattan Associates shares, roughly 50 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 Manhattan Associates.
