However JetBlue Airways Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of JetBlue Airways Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable JetBlue Airways Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case JetBlue Airways Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 JetBlue Airways Corporation shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0774% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable JetBlue Airways Corporation shares, roughly 77 shares are currently held short).
