There are currently 18.7 million MicroVision shares held short by investors – that's known as MicroVision's "short interest". This figure is 1.6% up from 18.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting MicroVision shares can be evaluated.
MicroVision's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MicroVision shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MicroVision shares traded daily (recently around 4.2 million). MicroVision's SIR currently stands at 4.49. In other words for every 100,000 MicroVision shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4490 shares are currently held short.
However MicroVision's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MicroVision shares, or, against the total number of tradable MicroVision shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MicroVision's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MicroVision shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1309% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MicroVision shares, roughly 131 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 MicroVision.

We're not expecting MicroVision to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
MicroVision's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 21 February 2012. So if you had owned 8 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 MicroVision shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for MicroVision shares which in turn could have impacted MicroVision's share price.
Over the last 12 months, MicroVision's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.153 up to $3.45. 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 MicroVision's is 3.0778. This would suggest that MicroVision's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
