    Float.............

    just so everyone knows (and I doubt sub knows what they are either or he would have said so) shares a float are the total numbers of shares available to the public and institutions. Forexample, insiders and mgt shares are NOT part of the float. You can take the market cap divided by the current price to get oustanding shares than subtract the % held by insiders to get the float.

    so...it's the "float"ing supply for shares to trade in the open market place. Hope this helps.
