There are currently 611,785 Rosetta Stone shares held short by investors – that's known as Rosetta Stone's "short interest". This figure is 46.2% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Rosetta Stone shares can be evaluated.
Rosetta Stone's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rosetta Stone shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rosetta Stone shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). Rosetta Stone's SIR currently stands at 0.32. In other words for every 100,000 Rosetta Stone shares traded daily on the market, roughly 320 shares are currently held short.
However Rosetta Stone's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rosetta Stone shares, or, against the total number of tradable Rosetta Stone shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rosetta Stone's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Rosetta Stone shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0263% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rosetta Stone shares, roughly 26 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 Rosetta Stone.

We're not expecting Rosetta Stone to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Rosetta Stone's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 5 November 2014. So if you had owned 4 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 Rosetta Stone shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rosetta Stone shares which in turn could have impacted Rosetta Stone's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Rosetta Stone's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.85 up to $31.24. 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 average) beta is 1, while Rosetta Stone's is 0.7711. This would suggest that Rosetta Stone's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
