Shorting Nio shares

There are currently 63.2 million Nio shares held short by investors – that's known as Nio's "short interest". This figure is 42.8% down from 110.5 million last month.

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

Nio's "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 129.0 million). Nio's SIR currently stands at 0.49. In other words for every 100,000 Nio shares traded daily on the market, roughly 490 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 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nio shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nio 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 Nio.

We're not expecting Nio to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Nio share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nio's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$1.36 up to US$21.05. 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 2.857. This would suggest that Nio's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
