TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 15.4 million Wayfair shares held short by investors – that's known as Wayfair's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% up from 15.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Wayfair shares can be evaluated.
Wayfair's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wayfair shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wayfair shares traded daily (recently around 2.7 million). Wayfair's SIR currently stands at 5.76. In other words for every 100,000 Wayfair shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5760 shares are currently held short.
However Wayfair's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Wayfair shares, or, against the total number of tradable Wayfair shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Wayfair's short interest could be expressed as 0.16% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Wayfair shares in existence, roughly 160 shares are currently held short) or 0.3112% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Wayfair shares, roughly 311 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 Wayfair.

We're not expecting Wayfair to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Wayfair's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.7 up to $349.082. 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 Wayfair's is 3.433. This would suggest that Wayfair's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
