There are currently 85,666 Townsquare Media shares held short by investors – that's known as Townsquare Media's "short interest". This figure is 12.4% down from 97,805 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Townsquare Media shares can be evaluated.

Townsquare Media's SIR currently stands at 7.29. In other words for every 100,000 Townsquare Media shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7290 shares are currently held short.
However Townsquare Media's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Townsquare Media shares, or, against the total number of tradable Townsquare Media shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Townsquare Media's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Townsquare Media shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0098% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Townsquare Media shares, roughly 10 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 Townsquare Media.

Dividend payout ratio: 12.5% of net profits
Recently Townsquare Media has paid out, on average, around 12.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Townsquare Media shareholders could enjoy a 5.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Townsquare Media's case, that would currently equate to about $0.3 per share.
While Townsquare Media's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Townsquare Media is investing more in its future growth.
Townsquare Media's most recent dividend payout was on 15 May 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 April 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Townsquare Media's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.4824 up to $10.1718. 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 Townsquare Media's is 1.8083. This would suggest that Townsquare Media's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
