TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 11.7 million Roku shares held short by investors – that's known as Roku's "short interest". This figure is 5.3% up from 11.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Roku shares can be evaluated.
Roku's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Roku shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Roku shares traded daily (recently around 14.3 million). Roku's SIR currently stands at 0.82. In other words for every 100,000 Roku shares traded daily on the market, roughly 820 shares are currently held short.
However Roku's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Roku shares, or, against the total number of tradable Roku shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Roku's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Roku shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0703% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Roku shares, roughly 70 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 Roku.

We're not expecting Roku to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Roku's shares have ranged in value from as little as $58.22 up to $185.44. 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 Roku's is 1.8312. This would suggest that Roku's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
