There are currently 257,657 Cass Information Systems shares held short by investors – that's known as Cass Information Systems's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% up from 248,029 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cass Information Systems shares can be evaluated.

Cass Information Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cass Information Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cass Information Systems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cass Information Systems shares traded daily (recently around 87638.43537415). Cass Information Systems's SIR currently stands at 2.94. In other words for every 100,000 Cass Information Systems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2940 shares are currently held short.

However Cass Information Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cass Information Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cass Information Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cass Information Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cass Information Systems shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0213% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cass Information Systems shares, roughly 21 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 Cass Information Systems.

Cass Information Systems share dividends

77%

Dividend payout ratio: 76.63% of net profits

Recently Cass Information Systems has paid out, on average, around 76.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cass Information Systems shareholders could enjoy a 2.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cass Information Systems's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.

Cass Information Systems'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.

Cass Information Systems's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Cass Information Systems's shares ever split?

Cass Information Systems's shares were split on a 6:5 basis on 2 December 2018. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 6 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cass Information Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 16.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cass Information Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Cass Information Systems's share price.

Cass Information Systems share price volatility
