ENGlobal Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.05. In other words for every 100,000 ENGlobal Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 50 shares are currently held short.

However ENGlobal Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ENGlobal Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable ENGlobal Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ENGlobal Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ENGlobal Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0161% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ENGlobal Corporation shares, roughly 16 shares are currently held short).
