In this case Valero Energy Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Valero Energy Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0252% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Valero Energy Corporation shares, roughly 25 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Valero Energy Corporation.
