Shorting NexGen Energy shares

There are currently 13.4 million NexGen Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as NexGen Energy's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% down from 14.3 million last month.

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

NexGen Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NexGen Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NexGen Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NexGen Energy shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). NexGen Energy's SIR currently stands at 11.99. In other words for every 100,000 NexGen Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11990 shares are currently held short.

However NexGen Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NexGen Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable NexGen Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NexGen Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NexGen Energy shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NexGen Energy shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against NexGen Energy.

NexGen Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, NexGen Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.496 up to $4.27. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NXE.US volatility(beta: 1.86)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while NexGen Energy's is 1.86. This would suggest that NexGen Energy's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
