There are currently 2.3 million DENTSPLY SIRONA shares held short by investors – that's known as DENTSPLY SIRONA's "short interest". This figure is 17.8% down from 2.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting DENTSPLY SIRONA shares can be evaluated.
DENTSPLY SIRONA's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
DENTSPLY SIRONA's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DENTSPLY SIRONA shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DENTSPLY SIRONA shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million).

However DENTSPLY SIRONA's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DENTSPLY SIRONA shares, or, against the total number of tradable DENTSPLY SIRONA shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DENTSPLY SIRONA's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DENTSPLY SIRONA shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0117% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DENTSPLY SIRONA shares, roughly 12 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 DENTSPLY SIRONA.

DENTSPLY SIRONA's environmental score of 5.65 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that DENTSPLY SIRONA is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Recently DENTSPLY SIRONA has paid out, on average, around 14.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), DENTSPLY SIRONA shareholders could enjoy a 0.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In DENTSPLY SIRONA's case, that would currently equate to about $0.41 per share.
While DENTSPLY SIRONA's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that DENTSPLY SIRONA is investing more in its future growth.

Have DENTSPLY SIRONA's shares ever split?
DENTSPLY SIRONA's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 July 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 DENTSPLY SIRONA shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for DENTSPLY SIRONA shares which in turn could have impacted DENTSPLY SIRONA's share price.
DENTSPLY SIRONA share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, DENTSPLY SIRONA's shares have ranged in value from as little as $43.6368 up to $69.2928. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
