However Harsco Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Harsco Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Harsco Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Harsco Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Harsco Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0551% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Harsco Corporation shares, roughly 55 shares are currently held short).
