There are currently 1.4 million YRC Worldwide shares held short by investors – that's known as YRC Worldwide's "short interest". This figure is 14.2% up from 1.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting YRC Worldwide shares can be evaluated.
YRC Worldwide's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of YRC Worldwide shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of YRC Worldwide shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). YRC Worldwide's SIR currently stands at 1.16. In other words for every 100,000 YRC Worldwide shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1160 shares are currently held short.
However YRC Worldwide's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of YRC Worldwide shares, or, against the total number of tradable YRC Worldwide shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case YRC Worldwide's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 YRC Worldwide shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0292% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable YRC Worldwide shares, roughly 29 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 YRC Worldwide.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your YRC Worldwide shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 29900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for YRC Worldwide shares which in turn could have impacted YRC Worldwide's share price.
