There are currently 741,803 Cumulus Media shares held short by investors – that's known as Cumulus Media's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% up from 696,118 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cumulus Media shares can be evaluated.
Cumulus Media's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cumulus Media shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cumulus Media shares traded daily (recently around 94617.729591837). Cumulus Media's SIR currently stands at 7.84. In other words for every 100,000 Cumulus Media shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7840 shares are currently held short.
However Cumulus Media's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cumulus Media shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cumulus Media shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cumulus Media's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cumulus Media shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.065% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cumulus Media shares, roughly 65 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 Cumulus Media.

We're not expecting Cumulus Media to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Cumulus Media's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 13 October 2016. So if you had owned 8 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 Cumulus Media shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cumulus Media shares which in turn could have impacted Cumulus Media's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Cumulus Media's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3 up to $18.15. 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 Cumulus Media's is 1.7671. This would suggest that Cumulus Media's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
