Shorting Golden Entertainment shares
There are currently 646,847 Golden Entertainment shares held short by investors – that's known as Golden Entertainment's "short interest". This figure is 5.8% up from 611,672 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Golden Entertainment shares can be evaluated.
Golden Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Golden Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Golden Entertainment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Golden Entertainment shares traded daily (recently around 214187.74834437). Golden Entertainment's SIR currently stands at 3.02. In other words for every 100,000 Golden Entertainment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3020 shares are currently held short.
However Golden Entertainment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Golden Entertainment shares, or, against the total number of tradable Golden Entertainment shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Golden Entertainment's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Golden Entertainment shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0342% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Golden Entertainment shares, roughly 34 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 Golden Entertainment.

However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Golden Entertainment shares which in turn could have impacted Golden Entertainment's share price.
Golden Entertainment share price volatility
