TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.2 million Natera shares held short by investors – that's known as Natera's "short interest". This figure is 11% down from 5.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Natera shares can be evaluated.
Natera's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Natera shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Natera shares traded daily (recently around 986581.66351607). Natera's SIR currently stands at 5.29. In other words for every 100,000 Natera shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5290 shares are currently held short.
However Natera's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Natera shares, or, against the total number of tradable Natera shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Natera's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Natera shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0671% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Natera shares, roughly 67 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 Natera.

We're not expecting Natera to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Natera's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.87 up to $75. 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 Natera's is 1.2002. This would suggest that Natera'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).
