In this case TAL Education Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TAL Education Group shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0809% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TAL Education Group shares, roughly 81 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 TAL Education Group.
