Shorting Natera shares

There are currently 5.9 million Natera shares held short by investors – that's known as Natera's "short interest". This figure is 13.5% down from 6.9 million last month.

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

Natera's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Natera's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Natera shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Natera shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Natera's SIR currently stands at 3.83. In other words for every 100,000 Natera shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3830 shares are currently held short.

However Natera's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Natera shares, or, against the total number of tradable Natera shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Natera's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Natera shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0705% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Natera shares, roughly 71 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Natera.

Natera share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Natera's shares have ranged in value from as little as $45.91 up to $127.19. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NTRA.US volatility(beta: 1.3)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Natera's is 1.3014. This would suggest that Natera's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
