There are currently 75.3 million Slack Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Slack Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 30.1% up from 57.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Slack Technologies shares can be evaluated.
Slack Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Slack Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Slack Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 21.3 million). Slack Technologies's SIR currently stands at 3.54. In other words for every 100,000 Slack Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3540 shares are currently held short.
However Slack Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Slack Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Slack Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Slack Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Slack Technologies shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1787% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Slack Technologies shares, roughly 179 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 Slack Technologies.

We're not expecting Slack Technologies to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Slack Technologies's shares were split on a 2:3 basis on 12 March 2015. So if you had owned 3 shares 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 Slack Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Slack Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Slack Technologies's share price.
