Shorting NanoString Technologies shares

There are currently 3.6 million NanoString Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as NanoString Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 7.7% down from 3.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NanoString Technologies shares can be evaluated.

NanoString Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NanoString Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NanoString Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NanoString Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 428911.51079137). NanoString Technologies's SIR currently stands at 8.34. In other words for every 100,000 NanoString Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8340 shares are currently held short.

However NanoString Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NanoString Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable NanoString Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NanoString Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NanoString Technologies shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0928% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NanoString Technologies shares, roughly 93 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against NanoString Technologies.
