There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares can be evaluated.
Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares traded daily (recently around 126361.91780822). Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's SIR currently stands at 3.65. In other words for every 100,000 Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3650 shares are currently held short.
However Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0011% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares, roughly 1 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 Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd.

Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 2.91% of net profits
Recently Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd has paid out, on average, around 2.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shareholders could enjoy a 3.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's case, that would currently equate to about $4.306 per share.
While Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd is investing more in its future growth.
Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's most recent dividend payout was on 4 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's shares ever split?
Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's shares were split on a 4:5 basis on 6 January 2011. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares which in turn could have impacted Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's share price.
