Shorting Las Vegas Sands shares

There are currently 12.6 million Las Vegas Sands shares held short by investors – that's known as Las Vegas Sands's "short interest". This figure is 14.3% down from 14.7 million last month.

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

Las Vegas Sands's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Las Vegas Sands's SIR currently stands at 3.03. In other words for every 100,000 Las Vegas Sands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3030 shares are currently held short.

However Las Vegas Sands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Las Vegas Sands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Las Vegas Sands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Las Vegas Sands's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Las Vegas Sands shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0381% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Las Vegas Sands shares, roughly 38 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 Las Vegas Sands.
