There are currently 9.0 million Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% down from 9.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares can be evaluated.
Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 3.75. In other words for every 100,000 Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3750 shares are currently held short.
However Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1214% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 121 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 Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals.

We're not expecting Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 17 November 2011. 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 Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals shares which in turn could have impacted Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals's share price.
