BrightSphere Investment Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However BrightSphere Investment Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BrightSphere Investment Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable BrightSphere Investment Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BrightSphere Investment Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BrightSphere Investment Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0189% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BrightSphere Investment Group shares, roughly 19 shares are currently held short).
