Shorting Zai Lab shares

There are currently 1.5 million Zai Lab shares held short by investors – that's known as Zai Lab's "short interest". This figure is 10.3% down from 1.6 million last month.

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

Zai Lab's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Zai Lab's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zai Lab shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zai Lab shares traded daily (recently around 351800.96153846). Zai Lab's SIR currently stands at 4.16. In other words for every 100,000 Zai Lab shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4160 shares are currently held short.

However Zai Lab's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zai Lab shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zai Lab shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zai Lab's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zai Lab shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zai Lab shares, roughly 0 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 Zai Lab.

ZLAB.US volatility(beta: 1.14)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Zai Lab's is 1.1394.
