There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Monarch Casino-and-Resort shares can be evaluated.

Monarch Casino-and-Resort's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Monarch Casino-and-Resort's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Monarch Casino-and-Resort shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Monarch Casino-and-Resort shares traded daily (recently around 74036.516853933).

However Monarch Casino-and-Resort's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Monarch Casino-and-Resort shares, or, against the total number of tradable Monarch Casino-and-Resort shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Monarch Casino-and-Resort's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Monarch Casino-and-Resort shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0369% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Monarch Casino-and-Resort shares, roughly 37 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Monarch Casino-and-Resort.
