Shorting MGM Resorts International shares

There are currently 14.3 million MGM Resorts International shares held short by investors – that's known as MGM Resorts International's "short interest". This figure is 18.5% down from 17.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting MGM Resorts International shares can be evaluated.

MGM Resorts International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MGM Resorts International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MGM Resorts International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MGM Resorts International shares traded daily (recently around 5.3 million). MGM Resorts International's SIR currently stands at 2.69. In other words for every 100,000 MGM Resorts International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2690 shares are currently held short.

However MGM Resorts International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MGM Resorts International shares, or, against the total number of tradable MGM Resorts International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MGM Resorts International's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MGM Resorts International shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0359% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MGM Resorts International shares, roughly 36 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 MGM Resorts International.
