TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 6.5 million Kala Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Kala Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 6% up from 6.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kala Pharmaceuticals shares can be evaluated.
Kala Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kala Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kala Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Kala Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 5.43. In other words for every 100,000 Kala Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5430 shares are currently held short.
However Kala Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kala Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kala Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kala Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kala Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.165% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kala Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 165 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 Kala Pharmaceuticals.

We're not expecting Kala Pharmaceuticals to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Kala Pharmaceuticals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.45 up to $14.23. 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 Kala Pharmaceuticals's is 0.3079. This would suggest that Kala Pharmaceuticals's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
