Answer: 
The armor alone does not provide sufficient grounding protection. The armor (metal cladding) does not count as an equipment grounding conductor (EGC) in standard MC cables and the green or bare EGC is required. It is necessary to use the green ground conductor.For our MCAP products, the armor and bare aluminum bonding conductor forms the ground path. MCAP does not have a green grounding conductor.

The armor alone does not provide sufficient grounding protection. The armor (metal cladding) does not count as an equipment grounding conductor (EGC) in standard MC cables and the green or bare EGC is required. It is necessary to use the green ground conductor.For our MCAP products, the armor and bare aluminum bonding conductor forms the ground path. MCAP does not have a green grounding conductor. There are installation instructions with every coil or reel that explain how to terminate the cable. Please view the link http://www.southwire.com/commercial/MCAPandHCFMCAP.htm The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess. The NEC and local building codes regulate the types of wire and cable that can be used in specific electrical applications, as well as the manner of installation. Check your local building codes before you start any wiring and cable electrical project and be sure to obtain required permits. When your work is complete, always have it inspected for compliance with local codes to ensure that it has been safely installed. Read Less

Answer: 
Previous answer is wrong. At best it is a maybe. This cable is not rated for exposure to the elements the cladding not being water proof. Note the packaging and Southwire website - this is rated for dry locations only.
