TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 131,150 Chase Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Chase Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% up from 128,764 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Chase Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Chase Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chase Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chase Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 22266.553480475). Chase Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.89. In other words for every 100,000 Chase Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5890 shares are currently held short.
However Chase Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chase Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chase Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chase Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chase Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0178% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chase Corporation shares, roughly 18 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Chase Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 21.27% of net profits
Recently Chase Corporation has paid out, on average, around 21.27% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chase Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chase Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.
While Chase Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Chase Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Chase Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Chase Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 June 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Chase Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chase Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Chase Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Chase Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $51.6209 up to $119.6018. 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 MKT average) beta is 1, while Chase Corporation's is 0.6367. This would suggest that Chase Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
