The Aarons Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Aarons Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Aarons Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.

However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for The Aarons Company shares which in turn could have impacted The Aarons Company's share price.
