There are currently 1.5 million nLIGHT shares held short by investors – that's known as nLIGHT's "short interest". This figure is 15.8% up from 1.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting nLIGHT shares can be evaluated.
nLIGHT's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of nLIGHT shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of nLIGHT shares traded daily (recently around 283123.40425532). nLIGHT's SIR currently stands at 5.17. In other words for every 100,000 nLIGHT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5170 shares are currently held short.
However nLIGHT's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of nLIGHT shares, or, against the total number of tradable nLIGHT shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case nLIGHT's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 nLIGHT shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0358% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable nLIGHT shares, roughly 36 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 nLIGHT.
