In this case Cheniere Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cheniere Energy shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0169% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cheniere Energy 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 Cheniere Energy.
