There are currently 1.9 million Lubys shares held short by investors – that's known as Lubys's "short interest". This figure is 3.3% down from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lubys shares can be evaluated.
Lubys's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lubys shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lubys shares traded daily (recently around 193516.97154472). Lubys's SIR currently stands at 9.84. In other words for every 100,000 Lubys shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9840 shares are currently held short.
However Lubys's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lubys shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lubys shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lubys's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lubys shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0818% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lubys shares, roughly 82 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 Lubys.

We're not expecting Lubys to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Lubys's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 6 August 1990. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lubys shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lubys shares which in turn could have impacted Lubys's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Lubys's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.46 up to $3.3. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Lubys's is 1.0919. This would suggest that Lubys's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
