Eastman Kodak Company's SIR currently stands at 2.33. In other words for every 100,000 Eastman Kodak Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2330 shares are currently held short.

However Eastman Kodak Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Eastman Kodak Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Eastman Kodak Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Eastman Kodak Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.2% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Eastman Kodak Company shares in existence, roughly 200 shares are currently held short) or 0.336% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Eastman Kodak Company shares, roughly 336 shares are currently held short).
