There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Performance Food Group Company shares can be evaluated.

In other words for every 100,000 Performance Food Group Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3280 shares are currently held short.

However Performance Food Group Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Performance Food Group Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Performance Food Group Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Performance Food Group Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Performance Food Group Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0246% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Performance Food Group Company shares, roughly 25 shares are currently held short).
