Shorting NuCana shares
There are currently 798,313 NuCana shares held short by investors – that's known as NuCana's "short interest". This figure is 61% up from 495,942 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NuCana shares can be evaluated.
NuCana's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
NuCana's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NuCana shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NuCana shares traded daily (recently around 528684.10596026). NuCana's SIR currently stands at 1.51. In other words for every 100,000 NuCana shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1510 shares are currently held short.
However NuCana's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NuCana shares, or, against the total number of tradable NuCana shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NuCana's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NuCana shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0253% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NuCana shares, roughly 25 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 NuCana.
