TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.5 million Ardelyx shares held short by investors – that's known as Ardelyx's "short interest". This figure is 7.3% down from 5.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ardelyx shares can be evaluated.
Ardelyx's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ardelyx shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ardelyx shares traded daily (recently around 687543.6795995). Ardelyx's SIR currently stands at 7.99. In other words for every 100,000 Ardelyx shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7990 shares are currently held short.
However Ardelyx's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ardelyx shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ardelyx shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ardelyx's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ardelyx shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0758% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ardelyx shares, roughly 76 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 Ardelyx.

We're not expecting Ardelyx to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Ardelyx's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.22 up to $8.815. 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 Ardelyx's is 1.8627. This would suggest that Ardelyx's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
