JAKKS Pacific's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However JAKKS Pacific's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of JAKKS Pacific shares, or, against the total number of tradable JAKKS Pacific shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case JAKKS Pacific's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 JAKKS Pacific shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0553% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable JAKKS Pacific shares, roughly 55 shares are currently held short).
