Shorting Synalloy Corporation shares

However Synalloy Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Synalloy Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Synalloy Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Synalloy Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Synalloy Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0108% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Synalloy Corporation shares, roughly 11 shares are currently held short).
