There are currently 11.3 million United Natural Foods shares held short by investors – that's known as United Natural Foods's "short interest". This figure is 11.5% up from 10.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting United Natural Foods shares can be evaluated.
United Natural Foods's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of United Natural Foods shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of United Natural Foods shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). United Natural Foods's SIR currently stands at 7.27. In other words for every 100,000 United Natural Foods shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7270 shares are currently held short.
However United Natural Foods's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of United Natural Foods shares, or, against the total number of tradable United Natural Foods shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case United Natural Foods's short interest could be expressed as 0.21% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 United Natural Foods shares in existence, roughly 210 shares are currently held short) or 0.3186% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable United Natural Foods shares, roughly 319 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 United Natural Foods.

We're not expecting United Natural Foods to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
United Natural Foods's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 April 2004. 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 United Natural Foods shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for United Natural Foods shares which in turn could have impacted United Natural Foods's share price.
