TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 15.8 million NOV shares held short by investors – that's known as NOV's "short interest". This figure is 19.3% up from 13.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NOV shares can be evaluated.
NOV's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NOV shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NOV shares traded daily (recently around 5.3 million). NOV's SIR currently stands at 3.01. In other words for every 100,000 NOV shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3010 shares are currently held short.
However NOV's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NOV shares, or, against the total number of tradable NOV shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NOV's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NOV shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.041% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NOV shares, roughly 41 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 NOV.

We're not expecting NOV to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
NOV's shares were split on a 1109:1000 basis on 2 June 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1109 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NOV shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NOV shares which in turn could have impacted NOV's share price.
Over the last 12 months, NOV's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.7 up to $19.9195. 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 NOV's is 2.2887. This would suggest that NOV's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
