There are currently 15.0 million Allergan shares held short by investors – that's known as Allergan's "short interest". This figure is 0.1% up from 15.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Allergan shares can be evaluated.
Allergan's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Allergan shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Allergan shares traded daily (recently around 4.7 million). Allergan's SIR currently stands at 3.22. In other words for every 100,000 Allergan shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3220 shares are currently held short.
However Allergan's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Allergan shares, or, against the total number of tradable Allergan shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Allergan's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Allergan shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0456% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Allergan shares, roughly 46 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 Allergan.

We're not expecting Allergan to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Allergan's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 October 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Allergan shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Allergan shares which in turn could have impacted Allergan's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Allergan's shares have ranged in value from as little as $158.67 up to $202.22. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Allergan's is 1.1992. This would suggest that Allergan's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
