Shorting Norwegian Cruise Line shares
There are currently 43.3 million Norwegian Cruise Line shares held short by investors – that's known as Norwegian Cruise Line's "short interest". This figure is 2.4% down from 44.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Norwegian Cruise Line shares can be evaluated.
Norwegian Cruise Line's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Norwegian Cruise Line's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Norwegian Cruise Line shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Norwegian Cruise Line shares traded daily (recently around 14.0 million). Norwegian Cruise Line's SIR currently stands at 3.08. In other words for every 100,000 Norwegian Cruise Line shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3080 shares are currently held short.
However Norwegian Cruise Line's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Norwegian Cruise Line shares, or, against the total number of tradable Norwegian Cruise Line shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Norwegian Cruise Line's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Norwegian Cruise Line shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1175% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Norwegian Cruise Line shares, roughly 118 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 Norwegian Cruise Line.
