TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 79,668 Origin Agritech shares held short by investors – that's known as Origin Agritech's "short interest". This figure is 10.1% up from 72,371 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Origin Agritech shares can be evaluated.
Origin Agritech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Origin Agritech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Origin Agritech shares traded daily (recently around 38673.786407767). Origin Agritech's SIR currently stands at 2.06. In other words for every 100,000 Origin Agritech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2060 shares are currently held short.
However Origin Agritech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Origin Agritech shares, or, against the total number of tradable Origin Agritech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Origin Agritech's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Origin Agritech shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0245% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Origin Agritech shares, roughly 25 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 Origin Agritech.

We're not expecting Origin Agritech to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Origin Agritech's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 10 July 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 Origin Agritech shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Origin Agritech shares which in turn could have impacted Origin Agritech's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Origin Agritech's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.76 up to $18.54. 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 Origin Agritech's is 1.1113. This would suggest that Origin Agritech'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).
