There are currently 2.1 million MoneyGram International shares held short by investors – that's known as MoneyGram International's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% up from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting MoneyGram International shares can be evaluated.
MoneyGram International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MoneyGram International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MoneyGram International shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). MoneyGram International's SIR currently stands at 1.84. In other words for every 100,000 MoneyGram International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1840 shares are currently held short.
However MoneyGram International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MoneyGram International shares, or, against the total number of tradable MoneyGram International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MoneyGram International's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MoneyGram International shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0301% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MoneyGram International shares, roughly 30 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 MoneyGram International.

MoneyGram International's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 15 November 2011. So if you had owned 8 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 MoneyGram International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for MoneyGram International shares which in turn could have impacted MoneyGram International's share price.
Over the last 12 months, MoneyGram International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.15 up to $5.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that MoneyGram International's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
