TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.3 million Oragenics shares held short by investors – that's known as Oragenics's "short interest". This figure is 41.1% down from 4.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Oragenics shares can be evaluated.
Oragenics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oragenics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oragenics shares traded daily (recently around 4.1 million). Oragenics's SIR currently stands at 0.57. In other words for every 100,000 Oragenics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 570 shares are currently held short.
However Oragenics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oragenics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oragenics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oragenics's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oragenics shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0472% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oragenics shares, roughly 47 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Oragenics.

We're not expecting Oragenics to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Oragenics's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 22 January 2018. 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 Oragenics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Oragenics shares which in turn could have impacted Oragenics's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Oragenics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.36 up to $1.84. 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 MKT average) beta is 1, while Oragenics's is 0.5329. This would suggest that Oragenics's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
