In this case Whitestone REIT's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Whitestone REIT shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0228% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Whitestone REIT shares, roughly 23 shares are currently held short).
