In this case Expeditors International of Washington's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Expeditors International of Washington shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0195% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Expeditors International of Washington shares, roughly 20 shares are currently held short).

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Expeditors International of Washington shares which in turn could have impacted Expeditors International of Washington's share price.
