There are currently 56.6 million Valaris shares held short by investors – that's known as Valaris's "short interest". This figure is 7% down from 60.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Valaris shares can be evaluated.
Valaris's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Valaris shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Valaris shares traded daily (recently around 8.9 million). Valaris's SIR currently stands at 6.36. In other words for every 100,000 Valaris shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6360 shares are currently held short.
However Valaris's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Valaris shares, or, against the total number of tradable Valaris shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Valaris's short interest could be expressed as 0.28% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Valaris shares in existence, roughly 280 shares are currently held short) or 0.4734% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Valaris shares, roughly 473 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Valaris.

We're not expecting Valaris to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Valaris's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 11 April 2019. So if you had owned 4 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 Valaris shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Valaris shares which in turn could have impacted Valaris's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Valaris's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.05 up to $7.755. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Valaris's is 2.8275. This would suggest that Valaris's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
