Shorting Nova Measuring Instruments shares

There are currently 927,105 Nova Measuring Instruments shares held short by investors – that's known as Nova Measuring Instruments's "short interest". This figure is 8.9% up from 851,614 last month.

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

Nova Measuring Instruments's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Nova Measuring Instruments's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nova Measuring Instruments shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nova Measuring Instruments shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nova Measuring Instruments's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nova Measuring Instruments shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0328% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nova Measuring Instruments shares, roughly 33 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Nova Measuring Instruments.
