There are currently 8.6 million Unit Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Unit Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.4% down from 8.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Unit Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Unit Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Unit Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Unit Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 3.9 million). Unit Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.19. In other words for every 100,000 Unit Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2190 shares are currently held short.
However Unit Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Unit Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Unit Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Unit Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.16% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Unit Corporation shares in existence, roughly 160 shares are currently held short) or 0.2662% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Unit Corporation shares, roughly 266 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 Unit Corporation.

Unit Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 December 1980. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Unit Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Unit Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Unit Corporation's share price.
