There are currently 6.9 million Community Health Systems shares held short by investors – that's known as Community Health Systems's "short interest". This figure is 5.5% down from 7.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Community Health Systems shares can be evaluated.
Community Health Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Community Health Systems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Community Health Systems shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Community Health Systems's SIR currently stands at 4.62. In other words for every 100,000 Community Health Systems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4620 shares are currently held short.
However Community Health Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Community Health Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Community Health Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Community Health Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Community Health Systems shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1029% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Community Health Systems shares, roughly 103 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 Community Health Systems.

We're not expecting Community Health Systems to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Community Health Systems's shares were split on a 121:100 basis on 22 April 2016. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 121 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Community Health Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 17.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Community Health Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Community Health Systems's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Community Health Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.25 up to $7.47. 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 Community Health Systems's is 1.9178. This would suggest that Community Health Systems's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
