There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting GP Strategies Corporation shares can be evaluated.

GP Strategies Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However GP Strategies Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GP Strategies Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable GP Strategies Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GP Strategies Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GP Strategies Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0307% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GP Strategies Corporation shares, roughly 31 shares are currently held short).
