There are currently 5,769 Seaboard Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Seaboard Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 26.4% up from 4,565 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Seaboard Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Seaboard Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.47. In other words for every 100,000 Seaboard Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5470 shares are currently held short.
However Seaboard Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Seaboard Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Seaboard Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Seaboard Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Seaboard Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.023% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Seaboard Corporation shares, roughly 23 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 Seaboard Corporation.
