Shorting Athersys shares
There are currently 17.6 million Athersys shares held short by investors – that's known as Athersys's "short interest". This figure is 25.2% down from 23.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Athersys shares can be evaluated.
Athersys's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Athersys's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Athersys shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Athersys shares traded daily (recently around 2.7 million). Athersys's SIR currently stands at 6.61. In other words for every 100,000 Athersys shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6610 shares are currently held short.
However Athersys's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Athersys shares, or, against the total number of tradable Athersys shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Athersys's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Athersys shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0864% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Athersys shares, roughly 86 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 Athersys.

Have Athersys's shares ever split?
Athersys's shares were split on 4 June 2007. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Athersys shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new INF% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Athersys shares which in turn could have impacted Athersys's share price.
Athersys share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Athersys's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.35 up to $3.03. 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 Athersys's is -1.7008. This would suggest that Athersys's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Athersys has bucked the trend.
