Shorting Plantronics shares
There are currently 3.1 million Plantronics shares held short by investors – that's known as Plantronics's "short interest". This figure is 8.5% up from 2.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Plantronics shares can be evaluated.
Plantronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Plantronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Plantronics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Plantronics shares traded daily (recently around 495969.77848101). Plantronics's SIR currently stands at 6.32. In other words for every 100,000 Plantronics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6320 shares are currently held short.
However Plantronics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Plantronics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Plantronics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Plantronics's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Plantronics shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.082% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Plantronics shares, roughly 82 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 Plantronics.

Have Plantronics's shares ever split?
Plantronics's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 8 August 2000. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Plantronics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Plantronics shares which in turn could have impacted Plantronics's share price.
Plantronics share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Plantronics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.0501 up to $46.15. 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 (N/A average) beta is 1, while Plantronics's is 1.8958. This would suggest that Plantronics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
