The Chemours Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However The Chemours Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Chemours Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Chemours Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Chemours Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Chemours Company shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0869% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Chemours Company shares, roughly 87 shares are currently held short).
