There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting The Aarons Company shares can be evaluated.

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

The Aarons Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Aarons Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Aarons Company shares traded daily (recently around 339563.41463415). The Aarons Company's SIR currently stands at 1.64. In other words for every 100,000 The Aarons Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1640 shares are currently held short.

However The Aarons Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Aarons Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Aarons Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Aarons Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Aarons Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0165% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Aarons Company shares, roughly 17 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 The Aarons Company.

The Aarons Company share dividends

6%

Dividend payout ratio: 5.69% of net profits

Recently The Aarons Company has paid out, on average, around 5.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.46% of the current stock value. 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.

While The Aarons Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that The Aarons Company is investing more in its future growth.

The Aarons Company's most recent dividend payout was on 5 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have The Aarons Company's shares ever split?

The Aarons Company's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 15 April 2010. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your The Aarons Company shares – just the quantity. 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.
