Shorting Wynn Resorts shares

There are currently 6.3 million Wynn Resorts shares held short by investors – that's known as Wynn Resorts's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% up from 6.2 million last month.

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

Wynn Resorts's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Wynn Resorts's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wynn Resorts shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wynn Resorts shares traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). Wynn Resorts's SIR currently stands at 2.77. In other words for every 100,000 Wynn Resorts shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2770 shares are currently held short.

However Wynn Resorts's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Wynn Resorts shares, or, against the total number of tradable Wynn Resorts shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Wynn Resorts's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Wynn Resorts shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.055% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Wynn Resorts shares, roughly 55 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 Wynn Resorts.
