In this case Spirit AeroSystems's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Spirit AeroSystems shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0382% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Spirit AeroSystems shares, roughly 38 shares are currently held short).
