TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 182,183 The9 shares held short by investors – that's known as The9's "short interest". This figure is 22.3% down from 234,391 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting The9 shares can be evaluated.
The9's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The9 shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The9 shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). The9's SIR currently stands at 0.16. In other words for every 100,000 The9 shares traded daily on the market, roughly 160 shares are currently held short.
However The9's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The9 shares, or, against the total number of tradable The9 shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The9's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The9 shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The9 shares, roughly 0 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 The9.

We're not expecting The9 to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
The9's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 19 October 2020. So if you had owned 10 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 The9 shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for The9 shares which in turn could have impacted The9's share price.
Over the last 12 months, The9's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.04 up to $27.82. 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 The9's is 1.9995. This would suggest that The9's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
