That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Alexander-and-Baldwin shares can be evaluated.

Alexander-and-Baldwin's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Alexander-and-Baldwin's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Alexander-and-Baldwin shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Alexander-and-Baldwin shares traded daily (recently around 473335.56701031). Alexander-and-Baldwin's SIR currently stands at 1.94. In other words for every 100,000 Alexander-and-Baldwin shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1940 shares are currently held short.

However Alexander-and-Baldwin's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Alexander-and-Baldwin shares, or, against the total number of tradable Alexander-and-Baldwin shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Alexander-and-Baldwin's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Alexander-and-Baldwin shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0184% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Alexander-and-Baldwin shares, roughly 18 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 Alexander-and-Baldwin.

Recently Alexander-and-Baldwin has paid out, on average, around 40.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Alexander-and-Baldwin shareholders could enjoy a 3.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Alexander-and-Baldwin's case, that would currently equate to about $0.34 per share.

While Alexander-and-Baldwin's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Alexander-and-Baldwin may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Alexander-and-Baldwin's most recent dividend payout was on 1 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
