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

Westell Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Westell Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Westell Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Westell Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Westell Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Westell Technologies shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0063% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Westell Technologies shares, roughly 6 shares are currently held short).
