Shorting Scientific Games Corporation shares

There are currently 9.8 million Scientific Games Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Scientific Games Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 48% up from 6.6 million last month.

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

Scientific Games Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Scientific Games Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Scientific Games Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Scientific Games Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Scientific Games Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.63. In other words for every 100,000 Scientific Games Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6630 shares are currently held short.

However Scientific Games Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Scientific Games Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Scientific Games Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Scientific Games Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Scientific Games Corporation shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1277% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Scientific Games Corporation shares, roughly 128 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 Scientific Games Corporation.

Have Scientific Games Corporation's shares ever split?

Scientific Games Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 October 1993. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Scientific Games Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Scientific Games Corporation's share price.

Scientific Games Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Scientific Games Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.11 up to $89.16. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
