When looking at initially investing in a stock I do take a look at the % of short interest. If its high it leads me to do a double check and extra research to see if I can find some reason for extra concern. But beyond that who cares? Let them short the stock - if management delivers results then buyers will come in and buy and the shorts will also have to buy to limit their losses. Thats it.
