There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares can be evaluated.
Smith-and-Wesson Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Smith-and-Wesson Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares traded daily (recently around 4.6 million). Smith-and-Wesson Brands's SIR currently stands at 1.32. In other words for every 100,000 Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1320 shares are currently held short.
However Smith-and-Wesson Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Smith-and-Wesson Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1406% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares, roughly 141 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 Smith-and-Wesson Brands.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Smith-and-Wesson Brands shareholders could enjoy a 1.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Smith-and-Wesson Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.15 per share.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 23.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Smith-and-Wesson Brands's share price.
