How to short and sell NIO shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "NIO.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 61.5 million NIO shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 1.5% up from 60.6 million last month.

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

Short interest ratio (SIR)

NIO's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NIO shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NIO shares traded daily (recently around 35.7 million). NIO's SIR currently stands at 1.72. In other words for every 100,000 NIO shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1720 shares are currently held short.

However NIO's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NIO shares, or, against the total number of tradable NIO shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NIO's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NIO shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0463% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NIO shares, roughly 46 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 NIO.

NIO share dividends

We're not expecting NIO to pay a dividend over the next 12 months. Typically it's companies that have been around for longer that pay dividends (NIO had its IPO on 11 September 2018). However, you can browse other dividend-paying shares in our guide.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, NIO's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.46 up to $66.99. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while NIO's is 2.5222. This would suggest that NIO's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
