There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Mack-Cali Realty Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Mack-Cali Realty Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Mack-Cali Realty Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mack-Cali Realty Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mack-Cali Realty Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 518247.67870302). Mack-Cali Realty Corporation's SIR currently stands at 13.57.

However Mack-Cali Realty Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mack-Cali Realty Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mack-Cali Realty Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mack-Cali Realty Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mack-Cali Realty Corporation shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1163% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mack-Cali Realty Corporation shares, roughly 116 shares are currently held short).
