However Allegro MicroSystems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Allegro MicroSystems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Allegro MicroSystems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Allegro MicroSystems's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Allegro MicroSystems shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.029% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Allegro MicroSystems shares, roughly 29 shares are currently held short).
