However Teekay Tankers's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Teekay Tankers shares, or, against the total number of tradable Teekay Tankers shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Teekay Tankers's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Teekay Tankers shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.058% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Teekay Tankers shares, roughly 58 shares are currently held short).
