There are currently 2.5 million Protagonist Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Protagonist Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 7.1% down from 2.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Protagonist Therapeutics shares can be evaluated.
Protagonist Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Protagonist Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Protagonist Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 315120.2970297). Protagonist Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 8.08. In other words for every 100,000 Protagonist Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8080 shares are currently held short.
However Protagonist Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Protagonist Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Protagonist Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Protagonist Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Protagonist Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0757% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Protagonist Therapeutics shares, roughly 76 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 Protagonist Therapeutics.

We're not expecting Protagonist Therapeutics to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Protagonist Therapeutics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.3 up to $23.43. 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 Protagonist Therapeutics's is 1.5328. This would suggest that Protagonist Therapeutics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
