Shorting Precision Drilling Corporation shares

However Precision Drilling Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Precision Drilling Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Precision Drilling Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Precision Drilling Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Precision Drilling Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0152% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Precision Drilling Corporation shares, roughly 15 shares are currently held short).
