In this case Charles-and-Colvard's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Charles-and-Colvard shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0075% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Charles-and-Colvard shares, roughly 8 shares are currently held short).
