However Jazz Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Jazz Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0623% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 62 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Jazz Pharmaceuticals.
