TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 6,083 ESSA Pharma shares held short by investors – that's known as ESSA Pharma's "short interest". This figure is 47.2% down from 11,527 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ESSA Pharma shares can be evaluated.
ESSA Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ESSA Pharma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ESSA Pharma shares traded daily (recently around 33794.444444444). ESSA Pharma's SIR currently stands at 0.18. In other words for every 100,000 ESSA Pharma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 180 shares are currently held short.
However ESSA Pharma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ESSA Pharma shares, or, against the total number of tradable ESSA Pharma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ESSA Pharma's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ESSA Pharma shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0006% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ESSA Pharma shares, roughly 1 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 ESSA Pharma.

We're not expecting ESSA Pharma to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
ESSA Pharma's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 25 April 2018. So if you had owned 20 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 ESSA Pharma shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for ESSA Pharma shares which in turn could have impacted ESSA Pharma's share price.
Over the last 12 months, ESSA Pharma's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3 up to $10.25. 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 ESSA Pharma's is 1.5198. This would suggest that ESSA Pharma's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
