There are currently 1.7 million Ribbon Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Ribbon Communications's "short interest". This figure is 8.1% down from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ribbon Communications shares can be evaluated.
Ribbon Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ribbon Communications shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ribbon Communications shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Ribbon Communications's SIR currently stands at 1.3. In other words for every 100,000 Ribbon Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1300 shares are currently held short.
However Ribbon Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ribbon Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ribbon Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ribbon Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ribbon Communications shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0256% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ribbon Communications shares, roughly 26 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 Ribbon Communications.

We're not expecting Ribbon Communications to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Ribbon Communications's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 29 January 2015. So if you had owned 5 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 Ribbon Communications shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ribbon Communications shares which in turn could have impacted Ribbon Communications's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Ribbon Communications's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.71 up to $11.25. 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 Ribbon Communications's is 1.1809. This would suggest that Ribbon Communications's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
