TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 140,029 PLx Pharma shares held short by investors – that's known as PLx Pharma's "short interest". This figure is 1% up from 138,574 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PLx Pharma shares can be evaluated.
PLx Pharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PLx Pharma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PLx Pharma shares traded daily (recently around 12491.436217663). PLx Pharma's SIR currently stands at 11.21. In other words for every 100,000 PLx Pharma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11210 shares are currently held short.
However PLx Pharma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PLx Pharma shares, or, against the total number of tradable PLx Pharma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PLx Pharma's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PLx Pharma shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0188% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PLx Pharma shares, roughly 19 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 PLx Pharma.

We're not expecting PLx Pharma to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
PLx Pharma's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 20 April 2017. So if you had owned 8 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 PLx Pharma shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for PLx Pharma shares which in turn could have impacted PLx Pharma's share price.
Over the last 12 months, PLx Pharma's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.8 up to $6.42. 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 PLx Pharma's is 5.1954. This would suggest that PLx Pharma's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
