Shorting Plug Power shares
There are currently 41.5 million Plug Power shares held short by investors – that's known as Plug Power's "short interest". This figure is 16.5% down from 49.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Plug Power shares can be evaluated.
Plug Power's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Plug Power's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Plug Power shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Plug Power shares traded daily (recently around 30.7 million). Plug Power's SIR currently stands at 1.35. In other words for every 100,000 Plug Power shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1350 shares are currently held short.
However Plug Power's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Plug Power shares, or, against the total number of tradable Plug Power shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Plug Power's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Plug Power shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0812% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Plug Power shares, roughly 81 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 Plug Power.

Have Plug Power's shares ever split?
Plug Power's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 19 May 2011. So if you had owned 10 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 Plug Power shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Plug Power shares which in turn could have impacted Plug Power's share price.
Plug Power share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Plug Power's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.07 up to $75.49. 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 Plug Power's is 1.4113. This would suggest that Plug Power's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
