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)

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 1.0 million). YRC Worldwide's SIR currently stands at 1.38. In other words for every 100,000 YRC Worldwide shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1380 shares are currently held short.

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 0.0294% 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.
