Shorting NovaGold Resources shares

There are currently 8.1 million NovaGold Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as NovaGold Resources's "short interest". This figure is 14.3% down from 9.5 million last month.

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

NovaGold Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NovaGold Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NovaGold Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NovaGold Resources shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). NovaGold Resources's SIR currently stands at 6.52. In other words for every 100,000 NovaGold Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6520 shares are currently held short.

However NovaGold Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NovaGold Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable NovaGold Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NovaGold Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NovaGold Resources shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0333% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NovaGold Resources shares, roughly 33 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 NovaGold Resources.
