TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.6 million VirnetX Holding shares held short by investors – that's known as VirnetX Holding's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 5.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting VirnetX Holding shares can be evaluated.
VirnetX Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VirnetX Holding shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VirnetX Holding shares traded daily (recently around 339222.1217601). VirnetX Holding's SIR currently stands at 16.59. In other words for every 100,000 VirnetX Holding shares traded daily on the market, roughly 16590 shares are currently held short.
However VirnetX Holding's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VirnetX Holding shares, or, against the total number of tradable VirnetX Holding shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VirnetX Holding's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VirnetX Holding shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0886% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VirnetX Holding shares, roughly 89 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against VirnetX Holding.

Dividend payout ratio: 25.19% of net profits
Recently VirnetX Holding has paid out, on average, around 25.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), VirnetX Holding shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In VirnetX Holding's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.
While VirnetX Holding's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that VirnetX Holding may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
VirnetX Holding's most recent dividend payout was on 26 May 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 May 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
VirnetX Holding's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 30 October 2007. So if you had owned 3 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 VirnetX Holding shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for VirnetX Holding shares which in turn could have impacted VirnetX Holding's share price.
Over the last 12 months, VirnetX Holding's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.6 up to $7.79. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
