TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.9 million Molecular Templates shares held short by investors – that's known as Molecular Templates's "short interest". This figure is 14.3% up from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Molecular Templates shares can be evaluated.
Molecular Templates's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Molecular Templates shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Molecular Templates shares traded daily (recently around 223178.32335329). Molecular Templates's SIR currently stands at 8.35. In other words for every 100,000 Molecular Templates shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8350 shares are currently held short.
However Molecular Templates's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Molecular Templates shares, or, against the total number of tradable Molecular Templates shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Molecular Templates's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Molecular Templates shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0863% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Molecular Templates shares, roughly 86 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 Molecular Templates.

We're not expecting Molecular Templates to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Molecular Templates's shares were split on a 1:11 basis on 2 August 2017. So if you had owned 11 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 Molecular Templates shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1000% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Molecular Templates shares which in turn could have impacted Molecular Templates's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Molecular Templates's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.51 up to $19.1229. 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 Molecular Templates's is 1.5614. This would suggest that Molecular Templates's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
