In this case Axalta Coating Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Axalta Coating Systems shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0314% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Axalta Coating Systems shares, roughly 31 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 Axalta Coating Systems.
