Shorting NextCure shares

There are currently 1.0 million NextCure shares held short by investors – that's known as NextCure's "short interest". This figure is 50.1% up from 687,766 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)

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 348653.37837838). NextCure's SIR currently stands at 2.96. In other words for every 100,000 NextCure shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2960 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 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NextCure shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0591% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NextCure shares, roughly 59 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.

NextCure share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, NextCure's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.82 up to $14.4. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while NextCure's is -0.514. This would suggest that NextCure's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, NextCure has bucked the trend.
