In this case JELD-WEN Holding's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 JELD-WEN Holding shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0322% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable JELD-WEN Holding shares, roughly 32 shares are currently held short).
