TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.0 million Cassava Sciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Cassava Sciences's "short interest". This figure is 78.8% up from 2.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cassava Sciences shares can be evaluated.
Cassava Sciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cassava Sciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cassava Sciences shares traded daily (recently around 17.8 million). Cassava Sciences's SIR currently stands at 0.28. In other words for every 100,000 Cassava Sciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 280 shares are currently held short.
However Cassava Sciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cassava Sciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cassava Sciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cassava Sciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.2% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cassava Sciences shares in existence, roughly 200 shares are currently held short) or 0.2156% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cassava Sciences shares, roughly 216 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 Cassava Sciences.

We're not expecting Cassava Sciences to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Cassava Sciences's shares were split on a 1:7 basis on 10 May 2017. So if you had owned 7 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 Cassava Sciences shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cassava Sciences shares which in turn could have impacted Cassava Sciences's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Cassava Sciences's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.1 up to $12.68. 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 Cassava Sciences's is 1.6327. This would suggest that Cassava Sciences's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
