In this case Northern Technologies International Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Northern Technologies International Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0009% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Northern Technologies International Corporation shares, roughly 1 shares are currently held short).
