There are currently 1.9 million NextCure shares held short by investors – that's known as NextCure's "short interest". This figure is 7% up from 1.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NextCure shares can be evaluated.
NextCure's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NextCure shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NextCure shares traded daily (recently around 410742.11663067). NextCure's SIR currently stands at 4.63. In other words for every 100,000 NextCure shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4630 shares are currently held short.
However NextCure's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NextCure shares, or, against the total number of tradable NextCure shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NextCure's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NextCure shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0737% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NextCure shares, roughly 74 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 NextCure.
