TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 457,066 Acasti Pharma shares held short by investors – that's known as Acasti Pharma's "short interest". This figure is 75.1% down from 1.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Acasti Pharma shares can be evaluated.
Acasti Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Acasti Pharma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Acasti Pharma shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). Acasti Pharma's SIR currently stands at 0.19. In other words for every 100,000 Acasti Pharma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 190 shares are currently held short.
However Acasti Pharma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Acasti Pharma shares, or, against the total number of tradable Acasti Pharma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Acasti Pharma's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Acasti Pharma shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0047% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Acasti Pharma shares, roughly 5 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Acasti Pharma.

We're not expecting Acasti Pharma to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Acasti Pharma's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 15 October 2015. So if you had owned 10 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 Acasti Pharma shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Acasti Pharma shares which in turn could have impacted Acasti Pharma's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Acasti Pharma's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.17 up to $3.08. 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 Acasti Pharma's is 1.2223. This would suggest that Acasti Pharma's shares 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).
