Ardagh Group S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ardagh Group S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ardagh Group S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ardagh Group S-A shares traded daily (recently around 87001.255230126).

However Ardagh Group S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ardagh Group S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ardagh Group S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ardagh Group S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ardagh Group S-A shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0113% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ardagh Group S-A shares, roughly 11 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 Ardagh Group S-A.

Ardagh Group S-A share dividends

In Ardagh Group S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

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