TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 327,327 BIOLASE shares held short by investors – that's known as BIOLASE's "short interest". This figure is 36.2% down from 513,266 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BIOLASE shares can be evaluated.
BIOLASE's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BIOLASE shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BIOLASE shares traded daily (recently around 2.7 million). BIOLASE's SIR currently stands at 0.12. In other words for every 100,000 BIOLASE shares traded daily on the market, roughly 120 shares are currently held short.
However BIOLASE's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BIOLASE shares, or, against the total number of tradable BIOLASE shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BIOLASE's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BIOLASE shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0042% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BIOLASE shares, roughly 4 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 BIOLASE.

We're not expecting BIOLASE to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
BIOLASE's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 11 May 2018. So if you had owned 5 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 BIOLASE shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for BIOLASE shares which in turn could have impacted BIOLASE's share price.
Over the last 12 months, BIOLASE's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.211 up to $0.9. 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 BIOLASE's is 1.8389. This would suggest that BIOLASE's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
