Shorting Nova LifeStyle shares

There are currently 7,408 Nova LifeStyle shares held short by investors – that's known as Nova LifeStyle's "short interest". This figure is 70.1% down from 24,800 last month.

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

Nova LifeStyle's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Nova LifeStyle's SIR currently stands at 0.1. In other words for every 100,000 Nova LifeStyle shares traded daily on the market, roughly 100 shares are currently held short.

However Nova LifeStyle's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nova LifeStyle shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nova LifeStyle shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nova LifeStyle's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nova LifeStyle shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0021% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nova LifeStyle shares, roughly 2 shares are currently held short).
