TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.7 million PAR Technology Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as PAR Technology Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.2% down from 2.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PAR Technology Corporation shares can be evaluated.
PAR Technology Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PAR Technology Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PAR Technology Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 247315.39153915). PAR Technology Corporation's SIR currently stands at 11.11. In other words for every 100,000 PAR Technology Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11110 shares are currently held short.
However PAR Technology Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PAR Technology Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable PAR Technology Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PAR Technology Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PAR Technology Corporation shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1401% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PAR Technology Corporation shares, roughly 140 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against PAR Technology Corporation.

We're not expecting PAR Technology Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
PAR Technology Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 9 January 2006. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your PAR Technology Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PAR Technology Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted PAR Technology Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, PAR Technology Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.635 up to $70.18. 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 PAR Technology Corporation's is 1.9139. This would suggest that PAR Technology Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
