There are currently 6.4 million Owens-and-Minor shares held short by investors – that's known as Owens-and-Minor's "short interest". This figure is 16.1% down from 7.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Owens-and-Minor shares can be evaluated.
Owens-and-Minor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Owens-and-Minor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Owens-and-Minor shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Owens-and-Minor's SIR currently stands at 3.22. In other words for every 100,000 Owens-and-Minor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3220 shares are currently held short.
However Owens-and-Minor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Owens-and-Minor shares, or, against the total number of tradable Owens-and-Minor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Owens-and-Minor's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Owens-and-Minor shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1027% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Owens-and-Minor shares, roughly 103 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 Owens-and-Minor.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Owens-and-Minor shareholders could enjoy a 0.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments.

However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Owens-and-Minor shares which in turn could have impacted Owens-and-Minor's share price.
