Shorting PlayAGS shares

There are currently 575,730 PlayAGS shares held short by investors – that's known as PlayAGS's "short interest". This figure is 22% down from 737,848 last month.

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

PlayAGS's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PlayAGS's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PlayAGS shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PlayAGS shares traded daily (recently around 303015.78947368). PlayAGS's SIR currently stands at 1.9. In other words for every 100,000 PlayAGS shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1900 shares are currently held short.

However PlayAGS's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PlayAGS shares, or, against the total number of tradable PlayAGS shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PlayAGS's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PlayAGS shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0206% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PlayAGS shares, roughly 21 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 PlayAGS.
