TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.1 million Avalara shares held short by investors – that's known as Avalara's "short interest". This figure is 4% up from 3.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Avalara shares can be evaluated.
Avalara's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avalara shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avalara shares traded daily (recently around 673828.78289474). Avalara's SIR currently stands at 6.08. In other words for every 100,000 Avalara shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6080 shares are currently held short.
However Avalara's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avalara shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avalara shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avalara's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avalara shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0498% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avalara shares, roughly 50 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 Avalara.

We're not expecting Avalara to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Avalara's shares have ranged in value from as little as $55.5 up to $158.17. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Avalara's is 0.7817. This would suggest that Avalara's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
