There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Townsquare Media shares can be evaluated.

Townsquare Media's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Townsquare Media's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Townsquare Media shares, or, against the total number of tradable Townsquare Media shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Townsquare Media's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Townsquare Media shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0098% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Townsquare Media shares, roughly 10 shares are currently held short).
