TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.3 million MediciNova shares held short by investors – that's known as MediciNova's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% up from 3.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting MediciNova shares can be evaluated.
MediciNova's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MediciNova shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MediciNova shares traded daily (recently around 176356.15631692). MediciNova's SIR currently stands at 18.68. In other words for every 100,000 MediciNova shares traded daily on the market, roughly 18680 shares are currently held short.
However MediciNova's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MediciNova shares, or, against the total number of tradable MediciNova shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MediciNova's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MediciNova shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0773% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MediciNova shares, roughly 77 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 MediciNova.

We're not expecting MediciNova to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
MediciNova's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 31 October 2006. So if you had owned 10 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 MediciNova shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for MediciNova shares which in turn could have impacted MediciNova's share price.
Over the last 12 months, MediciNova's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.79 up to $8.085. 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 MediciNova's is 1.5259. This would suggest that MediciNova's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
