There are currently 26.9 million Bombardier stocks held short by investors – that's known as Bombardier's "short interest". This figure is 13.1% up from 23.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bombardier stocks can be evaluated.
Bombardier's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Bombardier's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bombardier stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bombardier stocks traded daily (recently around 8.8 million). Bombardier's SIR currently stands at 3.05. In other words for every 100,000 Bombardier stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3050 stocks are currently held short.
However Bombardier's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bombardier stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Bombardier stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bombardier's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Bombardier stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0126% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Bombardier stocks, roughly 13 stocks are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Bombardier.

Bombardier stock dividends
We're not expecting Bombardier to pay a dividend over the next 12 months. However, you can browse other dividend-paying stocks in our guide.
Have Bombardier stocks ever split?
Bombardier stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 5 July 2000. 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 Bombardier stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Bombardier stocks which in turn could have impacted Bombardier's stock price.
Bombardier stock price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Bombardier's stocks have ranged in value from as little as C$0.1561 up to C$1.52. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while Bombardier's is 2.9954. This would suggest that Bombardier's stocks are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
