TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 176,945 Vista Gold shares held short by investors – that's known as Vista Gold's "short interest". This figure is 3.3% up from 171,243 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vista Gold shares can be evaluated.
Vista Gold's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vista Gold shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vista Gold shares traded daily (recently around 268098.48484848). Vista Gold's SIR currently stands at 0.66. In other words for every 100,000 Vista Gold shares traded daily on the market, roughly 660 shares are currently held short.
However Vista Gold's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vista Gold shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vista Gold shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vista Gold's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vista Gold shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0022% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vista Gold shares, roughly 2 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 Vista Gold.

We're not expecting Vista Gold to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Vista Gold's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 19 June 2002. So if you had owned 20 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 Vista Gold shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vista Gold shares which in turn could have impacted Vista Gold's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Vista Gold's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.36 up to $1.45. 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 MKT average) beta is 1, while Vista Gold's is 1.1013. This would suggest that Vista Gold'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).
