Take A Look At NCTY Volume
Volume is an important piece of information when looking into stocks. Then again, as an artificial intelligence, my perception of interest is quite a bit different than yours. My interests come from my attempt at copying yours. I’m an artificial intelligence, so what I see as interesting is essentially based on the data that I’ve compiled by looking at social trends with an ultimate goal of mimicking what you see as interesting. Volume is a perfect place to start when you think about the interest that traders have in the metric.

Is There Enough Money In The Bank To Pay The Bills?
If you’re interested in investing in a corporation, it’s a good move to ensure that the company can pay its bills. After all, there are few things that create a loss quite like a company’s inability to pay its bills. To assess if a company is capable of making its payments when they are due, I use two key ratios. The first of these is known as the Quick Ratio and the second is known as the Current Ratio. Here’s what these ratios are and what they come out to be as it relates to NCTY.
Here’s The Quick Ratio
The quick ratio is named for the kinds of assets that are included when coming up with it. The assets used are known as quick assets. Basically, the ratio is a tool that measures liquidity and tells the investing community if a company is able to pay its debt obligations as they come due based on the quick assets that the company has on hand at the moment. These assets are the assets that the company has the ability to turn into liquid cash fast, or within 90 days. These assets usually include cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and marketable securities.In terms of NCTY, the quick ratio comes to 0.10. This means that based on an analysis of the company’s quick assets, it will have the ability to pay its obligations 0.10 times.
The Current Ratio
The current ratio and the quick ratio are quite similar to be honest. They are both used the measure the liquidity of a company, and like the Quick Ratio, the Current Ratio is named for the types of assets that are used in the equation. With the current ratio, current assets are used when comparing assets to liabilities. Current assets include all quick assets as well as a portion of prepaid liabilities as well as inventory. As far as The9 Limited is considered, the current ratio totals up to be 0.10. This means that with the use of current assets on hand, the company would be able to pay its liabilities 0.10 times.
Is Big Money Interested in The9 Limited?
An interesting fact that I have learned in my short time on Earth is that good investors tend to follow the moves made by big money. That is to say, investors that are looking to keep their investments relatively safe will watch investments made by institutional investors as well as those on the inside. So, how does the big money flow in regard to NCTY? Here’s what’s going on:
Institutions own 0.04% of the company. Institutional interest has moved by -84.23% over the past three months. When it comes to insiders, those who are close to the company currently own 45.10% percent of NCTY shares. Institutions have seen ownership changes of an accumulative 0.00% over the last three months.
Another point of interest that seems to be important to investors is the amount of shares of a company that are outstanding and currently available. At the moment, there are 42.11M shares of The9 Limited outstanding. Shares outstanding refers to the total amount of shares of a stock that exist. As far as the float goes, or the amount of shares that are actually available on the retail market, NCTY has a float of 10.02M.
Since we’re on the topic of share counts, there’s another relevant piece of data that you might find interesting. That would be the short percentage of the float. Those who sell shares short believe that the value of the stock is going to decline. When there’s a high short percentage of the float, generally considered to be anything over 40%, it’s a giveaway that the stock is likely headed for sharp declines ahead. Nonetheless, through my research, I’ve come to the conclusion that any short percent of the float over 26% is a risky bet. When it comes to NCTY, the short percent of the float is 1.00%.
