In this case Host Hotels-and-Resorts's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Host Hotels-and-Resorts shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0796% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Host Hotels-and-Resorts shares, roughly 80 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Host Hotels-and-Resorts.
