TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 44.4 million Slack shares held short by investors – that's known as Slack'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 shares can be evaluated.
Slack's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Slack shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Slack shares traded daily (recently around 4.7 million). Slack's SIR currently stands at 9.4. In other words for every 100,000 Slack shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9400 shares are currently held short.
However Slack's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Slack shares, or, against the total number of tradable Slack shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Slack's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Slack shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0901% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Slack 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.

We're not expecting Slack to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Slack'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 shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Slack shares which in turn could have impacted Slack's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Slack's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$18.4 up to US$45.64. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Slack's is 0.9555. This would suggest that Slack's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
