TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 497,644 Acer Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Acer Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 43% up from 347,970 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Acer Therapeutics shares can be evaluated.
Acer Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Acer Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Acer Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 114400.91954023). Acer Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 4.35. In other words for every 100,000 Acer Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4350 shares are currently held short.
However Acer Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Acer Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Acer Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Acer Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Acer Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0556% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Acer Therapeutics shares, roughly 56 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 Acer Therapeutics.

We're not expecting Acer Therapeutics to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Acer Therapeutics's shares were split on a 96:1000 basis on 21 September 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 96 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Acer Therapeutics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 941.7% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Acer Therapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted Acer Therapeutics's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Acer Therapeutics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.08 up to $6.1. 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 Acer Therapeutics's is 1.3626. This would suggest that Acer Therapeutics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
