There are currently 165,726 BG Staffing shares held short by investors – that's known as BG Staffing's "short interest". This figure is 10% down from 184,041 last month.

BG Staffing's SIR currently stands at 2.39. In other words for every 100,000 BG Staffing shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2390 shares are currently held short.
However BG Staffing's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BG Staffing shares, or, against the total number of tradable BG Staffing shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BG Staffing's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BG Staffing shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0165% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BG Staffing shares, roughly 17 shares are currently held short).

Dividend payout ratio: 200% of net profits
Recently BG Staffing has paid out, on average, around 200% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BG Staffing shareholders could enjoy a 2.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BG Staffing's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.
BG Staffing's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
BG Staffing's most recent dividend payout was on 25 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, BG Staffing's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.6898 up to $22.38. 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 BG Staffing's is 1.9421. This would suggest that BG Staffing's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
