TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.3 million ShockWave Medical shares held short by investors – that's known as ShockWave Medical's "short interest". This figure is 13.7% up from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ShockWave Medical shares can be evaluated.
ShockWave Medical's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ShockWave Medical shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ShockWave Medical shares traded daily (recently around 458988.69047619). ShockWave Medical's SIR currently stands at 5.04. In other words for every 100,000 ShockWave Medical shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5040 shares are currently held short.
However ShockWave Medical's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ShockWave Medical shares, or, against the total number of tradable ShockWave Medical shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ShockWave Medical's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ShockWave Medical shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1219% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ShockWave Medical shares, roughly 122 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 ShockWave Medical.

We're not expecting ShockWave Medical to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, ShockWave Medical's shares have ranged in value from as little as $34.41 up to $143.785. 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 ShockWave Medical's is 1.2199. This would suggest that ShockWave Medical'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).
