In this case Chicos FAS's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chicos FAS shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0859% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chicos FAS shares, roughly 86 shares are currently held short).
