There are currently 2.5 million Affiliated Managers Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Affiliated Managers Group's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% up from 2.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Affiliated Managers Group shares can be evaluated.

However Affiliated Managers Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Affiliated Managers Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Affiliated Managers Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Affiliated Managers Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Affiliated Managers Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0762% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Affiliated Managers Group shares, roughly 76 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 Affiliated Managers Group.

Recently Affiliated Managers Group has paid out, on average, around 39.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Affiliated Managers Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Affiliated Managers Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.04 per share.
While Affiliated Managers Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Affiliated Managers Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Affiliated Managers Group's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 30 March 2004. 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 Affiliated Managers Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Affiliated Managers Group shares which in turn could have impacted Affiliated Managers Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Affiliated Managers Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $44.37 up to $88.95. 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 Affiliated Managers Group's is 1.4805. This would suggest that Affiliated Managers Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
