There are currently 25.7 million Bombardier shares held short by investors – that's known as Bombardier's "short interest". This figure is 9.3% down from 28.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bombardier shares can be evaluated.
Bombardier's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Bombardier's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bombardier shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bombardier shares traded daily (recently around 10.2 million). Bombardier's SIR currently stands at 2.53. In other words for every 100,000 Bombardier shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2530 shares are currently held short.
However Bombardier's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bombardier shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bombardier shares (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 shares (for every 100,000 Bombardier shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bombardier shares, roughly 0 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 Bombardier.

Have Bombardier's shares ever split?
Bombardier's shares 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 shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bombardier shares which in turn could have impacted Bombardier's share price.
Bombardier share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Bombardier's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$0.1189 up to C$8.85. 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 (TO average) beta is 1, while Bombardier's is 3.1023. This would suggest that Bombardier's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
