Shorting Alphatec shares
There are currently 2.2 million Alphatec shares held short by investors – that's known as Alphatec's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% down from 2.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Alphatec shares can be evaluated.
Alphatec's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Alphatec's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Alphatec shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Alphatec shares traded daily (recently around 426145.3307393). Alphatec's SIR currently stands at 5.14. In other words for every 100,000 Alphatec shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5140 shares are currently held short.
However Alphatec's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Alphatec shares, or, against the total number of tradable Alphatec shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Alphatec's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Alphatec shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0386% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Alphatec shares, roughly 39 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 Alphatec.

We're not expecting Alphatec to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Alphatec's shares ever split?
Alphatec's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 24 August 2016. So if you had owned 12 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Alphatec shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alphatec shares which in turn could have impacted Alphatec's share price.
Alphatec share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Alphatec's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.87 up to $19.36. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Alphatec's is 1.6529. This would suggest that Alphatec's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
