In this case Arista Networks's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arista Networks shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0852% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arista Networks shares, roughly 85 shares are currently held short).
