TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 6.7 million Anavex Life Sciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Anavex Life Sciences's "short interest". This figure is 9.5% down from 7.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Anavex Life Sciences shares can be evaluated.
Anavex Life Sciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Anavex Life Sciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Anavex Life Sciences shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Anavex Life Sciences's SIR currently stands at 5.11. In other words for every 100,000 Anavex Life Sciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5110 shares are currently held short.
However Anavex Life Sciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Anavex Life Sciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Anavex Life Sciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Anavex Life Sciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Anavex Life Sciences shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1162% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Anavex Life Sciences shares, roughly 116 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 Anavex Life Sciences.

We're not expecting Anavex Life Sciences to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Anavex Life Sciences's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 7 October 2015. So if you had owned 4 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 Anavex Life Sciences shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Anavex Life Sciences shares which in turn could have impacted Anavex Life Sciences's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Anavex Life Sciences's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.2 up to $7.69. 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 Anavex Life Sciences's is 0.7412. This would suggest that Anavex Life Sciences's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
