However Sequential Brands Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sequential Brands Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sequential Brands Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sequential Brands Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sequential Brands Group shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1172% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sequential Brands Group shares, roughly 117 shares are currently held short).
