There are currently 3.5 million Lexicon Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Lexicon Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 4.6% down from 3.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lexicon Pharmaceuticals shares can be evaluated.
Lexicon Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lexicon Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lexicon Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Lexicon Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 3.32. In other words for every 100,000 Lexicon Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3320 shares are currently held short.
However Lexicon Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lexicon Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lexicon Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lexicon Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lexicon Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0556% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lexicon Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 56 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 Lexicon Pharmaceuticals.

We're not expecting Lexicon Pharmaceuticals to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Lexicon Pharmaceuticals's shares were split on a 1:7 basis on 20 May 2015. 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 Lexicon Pharmaceuticals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lexicon Pharmaceuticals shares which in turn could have impacted Lexicon Pharmaceuticals's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Lexicon Pharmaceuticals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.03 up to $9.43. 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 Lexicon Pharmaceuticals's is 1.4534. This would suggest that Lexicon Pharmaceuticals's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
