Independence Realty Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Independence Realty Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Independence Realty Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Independence Realty Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float").
