There are currently 2.1 million McKesson Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as McKesson Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.8% down from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting McKesson Corporation shares can be evaluated.

McKesson Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.19. In other words for every 100,000 McKesson Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2190 shares are currently held short.
However McKesson Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of McKesson Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable McKesson Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case McKesson Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 McKesson Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0133% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable McKesson Corporation shares, roughly 13 shares are currently held short).

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for McKesson Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted McKesson Corporation's share price.
