In this case The Travelers Companies's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Travelers Companies shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0205% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Travelers Companies shares, roughly 21 shares are currently held short).
