Shorting Coherent shares
There are currently 1.9 million Coherent shares held short by investors – that's known as Coherent's "short interest". This figure is 3% up from 1.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Coherent shares can be evaluated.
Coherent's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Coherent's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Coherent shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Coherent shares traded daily (recently around 248731.48880105). Coherent's SIR currently stands at 7.59. In other words for every 100,000 Coherent shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7590 shares are currently held short.
However Coherent's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Coherent shares, or, against the total number of tradable Coherent shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Coherent's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Coherent shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0781% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Coherent shares, roughly 78 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 Coherent.

Have Coherent's shares ever split?
Coherent's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 March 1998. 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 Coherent shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Coherent shares which in turn could have impacted Coherent's share price.
Coherent share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Coherent's shares have ranged in value from as little as $103.0001 up to $270.99. 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 Coherent's is 1.6257. This would suggest that Coherent's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
