Shorting NCS Multistage shares

There are currently 8,920 NCS Multistage shares held short by investors – that's known as NCS Multistage's "short interest". This figure is 47.9% down from 17,109 last month.

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

NCS Multistage's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NCS Multistage's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NCS Multistage shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NCS Multistage shares traded daily (recently around 6914.7286821705). NCS Multistage's SIR currently stands at 1.29. In other words for every 100,000 NCS Multistage shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1290 shares are currently held short.

However NCS Multistage's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NCS Multistage shares, or, against the total number of tradable NCS Multistage shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NCS Multistage's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NCS Multistage shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0137% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NCS Multistage shares, roughly 14 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 NCS Multistage.
