TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 21.7 million Mattel shares held short by investors – that's known as Mattel's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% up from 21.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Mattel shares can be evaluated.
Mattel's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mattel shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mattel shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). Mattel's SIR currently stands at 11.21. In other words for every 100,000 Mattel shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11210 shares are currently held short.
However Mattel's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mattel shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mattel shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mattel's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mattel shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1206% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mattel shares, roughly 121 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Mattel.

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Mattel's overall score of 13.05 (as at 08/01/2020) is excellent – landing it in it in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Mattel is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 1.43/100

We're not expecting Mattel to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Mattel's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 4 March 1996. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Mattel shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mattel shares which in turn could have impacted Mattel's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Mattel's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.53 up to $14.83. 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 Mattel's is 1.5931. This would suggest that Mattel's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
