ASML Holding N-V's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ASML Holding N-V shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ASML Holding N-V shares traded daily (recently around 647615.625). ASML Holding N-V's SIR currently stands at 0.96. In other words for every 100,000 ASML Holding N-V shares traded daily on the market, roughly 960 shares are currently held short.

In this case ASML Holding N-V's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ASML Holding N-V shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0015% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ASML Holding N-V shares, roughly 2 shares are currently held short).

Recently ASML Holding N-V has paid out, on average, around 25.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ASML Holding N-V shareholders could enjoy a 0.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ASML Holding N-V's case, that would currently equate to about $1.55 per share.
While ASML Holding N-V's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ASML Holding N-V may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ASML Holding N-V shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 29.9% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for ASML Holding N-V shares which in turn could have impacted ASML Holding N-V's share price.
