Shorting ScanSource shares
There are currently 252,437 ScanSource shares held short by investors – that's known as ScanSource's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% down from 274,115 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ScanSource shares can be evaluated.
ScanSource's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
ScanSource's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ScanSource shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ScanSource shares traded daily (recently around 106964.83050847). ScanSource's SIR currently stands at 2.36. In other words for every 100,000 ScanSource shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2360 shares are currently held short.
However ScanSource's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ScanSource shares, or, against the total number of tradable ScanSource shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ScanSource's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ScanSource shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0101% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ScanSource shares, roughly 10 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 ScanSource.

ScanSource share dividends
We're not expecting ScanSource to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have ScanSource's shares ever split?
ScanSource's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 5 June 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ScanSource shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ScanSource shares which in turn could have impacted ScanSource's share price.
ScanSource share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, ScanSource's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.25 up to $33.28. 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 ScanSource's is 1.5865. This would suggest that ScanSource's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
