There are currently 631,359 Golden Entertainment shares held short by investors – that's known as Golden Entertainment's "short interest". This figure is 0.1% down from 631,724 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) is the quantity of Golden Entertainment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Golden Entertainment shares traded daily (recently around 259818.51851852). Golden Entertainment's SIR currently stands at 2.43. In other words for every 100,000 Golden Entertainment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2430 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 0.0337% 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.

We're not expecting Golden Entertainment to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Golden Entertainment's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 10 September 2014. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Golden Entertainment shares – just the quantity. 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.
Over the last 12 months, Golden Entertainment's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.55 up to $21.67. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Golden Entertainment's is 2.4997. This would suggest that Golden Entertainment's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
