There are currently 7.5 million Scientific Games Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Scientific Games Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% up from 7.0 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) is the quantity of Scientific Games Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Scientific Games Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 3.7 million). Scientific Games Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.04. In other words for every 100,000 Scientific Games Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2040 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 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Scientific Games Corporation shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1309% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Scientific Games Corporation shares, roughly 131 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 Scientific Games Corporation.
