Shorting Slack Technologies shares

There are currently 44.4 million Slack Technologies shares 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 shares can be evaluated.

Slack Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Slack Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Slack Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Slack Technologies shares 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 shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9400 shares are currently held short.

However Slack Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Slack Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Slack Technologies shares (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 shares (for every 100,000 Slack Technologies shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0901% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Slack Technologies shares, roughly 90 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Slack Technologies.

Slack Technologies share dividends

We're not expecting Slack Technologies to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Slack Technologies's shares ever split?

Slack Technologies's shares were split on a 2:3 basis on 11 March 2015. So if you had owned 3 shares 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 Slack Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Slack Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Slack Technologies's share price.

Slack Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Slack Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.4 up to $45.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WORK.US volatility(beta: 0.96)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's 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 shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
