Shorting Accel Entertainment shares

There are currently 1.9 million Accel Entertainment shares held short by investors – that's known as Accel Entertainment's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% up from 1.9 million last month.

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

Accel Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Accel Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Accel Entertainment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Accel Entertainment shares traded daily (recently around 163322.69565217). Accel Entertainment's SIR currently stands at 11.5. In other words for every 100,000 Accel Entertainment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11500 shares are currently held short.

However Accel Entertainment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Accel Entertainment shares, or, against the total number of tradable Accel Entertainment shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Accel Entertainment's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Accel Entertainment shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0418% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Accel Entertainment shares, roughly 42 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Accel Entertainment.
