TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 90,320 Lightbridge Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Lightbridge Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 54.3% up from 58,549 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lightbridge Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Lightbridge Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lightbridge Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lightbridge Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 501777.77777778). Lightbridge Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.18. In other words for every 100,000 Lightbridge Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 180 shares are currently held short.
However Lightbridge Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lightbridge Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lightbridge Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lightbridge Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lightbridge Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0161% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lightbridge Corporation shares, roughly 16 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 Lightbridge Corporation.

We're not expecting Lightbridge Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Lightbridge Corporation's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 21 October 2019. So if you had owned 12 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 Lightbridge Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lightbridge Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Lightbridge Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Lightbridge Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.71 up to $8.55. 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 Lightbridge Corporation's is 3.2394. This would suggest that Lightbridge Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
