Shorting Nkarta shares

There are currently 1.0 million Nkarta shares held short by investors – that's known as Nkarta's "short interest". This figure is 5.3% up from 967,582 last month.

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

Nkarta's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Nkarta's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nkarta shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nkarta shares traded daily (recently around 140552.55172414). Nkarta's SIR currently stands at 7.25. In other words for every 100,000 Nkarta shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7250 shares are currently held short.

However Nkarta's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nkarta shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nkarta shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nkarta's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nkarta shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.034% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nkarta shares, roughly 34 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Nkarta.
