There are currently 6.1 million South Jersey Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as South Jersey Industries's "short interest". This figure is 17.7% down from 7.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting South Jersey Industries shares can be evaluated.
South Jersey Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of South Jersey Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of South Jersey Industries shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). South Jersey Industries's SIR currently stands at 5.44. In other words for every 100,000 South Jersey Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5440 shares are currently held short.
However South Jersey Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of South Jersey Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable South Jersey Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case South Jersey Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 South Jersey Industries shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1003% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable South Jersey Industries shares, roughly 100 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 South Jersey Industries.

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