However Arcos Dorados's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arcos Dorados shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arcos Dorados shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arcos Dorados's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arcos Dorados shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.017% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arcos Dorados shares, roughly 17 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 Arcos Dorados.
