There are currently 1.8 million Ribbon Communications stocks held short by investors – that's known as Ribbon Communications's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% down from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ribbon Communications stocks can be evaluated.
Ribbon Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Ribbon Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ribbon Communications stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ribbon Communications stocks traded daily (recently around 342259.25925926). Ribbon Communications's SIR currently stands at 5.4. In other words for every 100,000 Ribbon Communications stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 5400 stocks are currently held short.
However Ribbon Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ribbon Communications stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Ribbon Communications stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ribbon Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Ribbon Communications stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0269% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Ribbon Communications stocks, roughly 27 stocks are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Ribbon Communications.

Have Ribbon Communications stocks ever split?
Ribbon Communications stocks were split on a 1:5 basis on 30 January 2015. So if you had owned 5 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 Ribbon Communications stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Ribbon Communications stocks which in turn could have impacted Ribbon Communications's stock price.
Ribbon Communications stock price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Ribbon Communications's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $3.61 up to $11.25. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Ribbon Communications's is 1.0909. This would suggest that Ribbon Communications's stocks are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
