There are currently 621,570 Quantum Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Quantum Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 11.3% up from 558,435 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Quantum Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Quantum Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Quantum Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Quantum Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 383685.18518519). Quantum Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.62. In other words for every 100,000 Quantum Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1620 shares are currently held short.
However Quantum Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Quantum Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Quantum Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Quantum Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Quantum Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0133% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Quantum Corporation shares, roughly 13 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 Quantum Corporation.

We're not expecting Quantum Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Quantum Corporation's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 18 April 2017. 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 Quantum Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Quantum Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Quantum Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Quantum Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.17 up to $9.47. 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 Quantum Corporation's is 2.2874. This would suggest that Quantum Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
