Telos Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Telos Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.3. In other words for every 100,000 Telos Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 300 shares are currently held short.

However Telos Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Telos Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Telos Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Telos Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Telos Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0071% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Telos Corporation shares, roughly 7 shares are currently held short).
