However Daqo New Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Daqo New Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Daqo New Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Daqo New Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Daqo New Energy shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Daqo New Energy shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).
