Churchill Downs Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Churchill Downs Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Churchill Downs Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Churchill Downs Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float").

Churchill Downs Incorporated share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 188.48% of net profits

Recently Churchill Downs Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 188.48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Churchill Downs Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 0.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Churchill Downs Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $0.622 per share.

Churchill Downs Incorporated'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.

Churchill Downs Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 5 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Churchill Downs Incorporated's shares ever split?

Churchill Downs Incorporated's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 27 January 2019. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Churchill Downs Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Churchill Downs Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Churchill Downs Incorporated's share price.

Churchill Downs Incorporated share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Churchill Downs Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $84.9456 up to $258.32. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CHDN.US volatility(beta: 1.39)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

This would suggest that Churchill Downs Incorporated's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
