TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 11.8 million Riot Blockchain shares held short by investors – that's known as Riot Blockchain's "short interest". This figure is 9.6% down from 13.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Riot Blockchain shares can be evaluated.
Riot Blockchain's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Riot Blockchain shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Riot Blockchain shares traded daily (recently around 32.8 million). Riot Blockchain's SIR currently stands at 0.36. In other words for every 100,000 Riot Blockchain shares traded daily on the market, roughly 360 shares are currently held short.
However Riot Blockchain's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Riot Blockchain shares, or, against the total number of tradable Riot Blockchain shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Riot Blockchain's short interest could be expressed as 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Riot Blockchain shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0.1794% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Riot Blockchain shares, roughly 179 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 Riot Blockchain.

Riot Blockchain's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 31 March 2016. So if you had owned 8 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 Riot Blockchain shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Riot Blockchain shares which in turn could have impacted Riot Blockchain's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Riot Blockchain's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.511 up to $79.5. 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 Riot Blockchain's is 4.5576. This would suggest that Riot Blockchain's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
