In this case SITE Centers's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SITE Centers shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0673% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SITE Centers shares, roughly 67 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against SITE Centers.
