TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.1 million AngloGold Ashanti shares held short by investors – that's known as AngloGold Ashanti's "short interest". This figure is 31.7% down from 3.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AngloGold Ashanti shares can be evaluated.
AngloGold Ashanti's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AngloGold Ashanti shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AngloGold Ashanti shares traded daily (recently around 3.1 million). AngloGold Ashanti's SIR currently stands at 0.66. In other words for every 100,000 AngloGold Ashanti shares traded daily on the market, roughly 660 shares are currently held short.
However AngloGold Ashanti's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AngloGold Ashanti shares, or, against the total number of tradable AngloGold Ashanti shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AngloGold Ashanti's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AngloGold Ashanti shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AngloGold Ashanti shares, roughly 0 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 AngloGold Ashanti.

Dividend payout ratio: 14.89% of net profits
Recently AngloGold Ashanti has paid out, on average, around 14.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AngloGold Ashanti shareholders could enjoy a 0.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AngloGold Ashanti's case, that would currently equate to about $0.09 per share.
While AngloGold Ashanti's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that AngloGold Ashanti is investing more in its future growth.

AngloGold Ashanti's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 29 June 1998. So if you had owned 5 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 AngloGold Ashanti shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for AngloGold Ashanti shares which in turn could have impacted AngloGold Ashanti's share price.
Over the last 12 months, AngloGold Ashanti's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.66 up to $38.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
