TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 11.9 million 2U shares held short by investors – that's known as 2U's "short interest". This figure is 6.5% up from 11.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting 2U shares can be evaluated.
2U's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of 2U shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of 2U shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). 2U's SIR currently stands at 8.16. In other words for every 100,000 2U shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8160 shares are currently held short.
However 2U's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of 2U shares, or, against the total number of tradable 2U shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case 2U's short interest could be expressed as 0.19% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 2U shares in existence, roughly 190 shares are currently held short) or 0.1877% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable 2U shares, roughly 188 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 2U.

We're not expecting 2U to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, 2U's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.51 up to $49.46. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while 2U's is 0.9062. This would suggest that 2U's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
