In this case Saga Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Saga Communications shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0021% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Saga Communications shares, roughly 2 shares are currently held short).

In Saga Communications's case, that would currently equate to about $0.16 per share.

However, indirectly, the new 25% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Saga Communications shares which in turn could have impacted Saga Communications's share price.
