There are currently 44.4 million Slack Technologies stocks held short by investors – that's known as Slack Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 5.4% up from 42.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Slack Technologies stocks can be evaluated.
Slack Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Slack Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Slack Technologies stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Slack Technologies stocks traded daily (recently around 4.7 million). Slack Technologies's SIR currently stands at 9.4. In other words for every 100,000 Slack Technologies stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 9400 stocks are currently held short.
However Slack Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Slack Technologies stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Slack Technologies stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Slack Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Slack Technologies stocks in existence, roughly 80 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0901% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Slack Technologies stocks, roughly 90 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 Slack Technologies.

Have Slack Technologies stocks ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Slack Technologies stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Slack Technologies stocks which in turn could have impacted Slack Technologies's stock price.
Slack Technologies stock price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Slack Technologies's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $24.09 up to $45.64. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Slack Technologies's is 0.9555. This would suggest that Slack Technologies's stocks are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
