Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 3.9 million).

In this case Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.46% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares in existence, roughly 460 shares are currently held short) or 0.7687% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Briggs-and-Stratton Corporation shares, roughly 769 shares are currently held short).
