However Molina Healthcare's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Molina Healthcare shares, or, against the total number of tradable Molina Healthcare shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Molina Healthcare's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Molina Healthcare shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0195% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Molina Healthcare shares, roughly 20 shares are currently held short).
