TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.8 million Chiasma shares held short by investors – that's known as Chiasma's "short interest". This figure is 9.8% up from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Chiasma shares can be evaluated.
Chiasma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chiasma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chiasma shares traded daily (recently around 508628.29131653). Chiasma's SIR currently stands at 3.57. In other words for every 100,000 Chiasma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3570 shares are currently held short.
However Chiasma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chiasma shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chiasma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chiasma's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chiasma shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.035% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chiasma shares, roughly 35 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 Chiasma.

We're not expecting Chiasma to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Chiasma's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.88 up to $7.75. 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 Chiasma's is 1.615. This would suggest that Chiasma's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
