TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.4 million Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Cincinnati Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 4.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Cincinnati Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 695865.10172144). Cincinnati Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.39. In other words for every 100,000 Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6390 shares are currently held short.
However Cincinnati Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cincinnati Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0342% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares, roughly 34 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 Cincinnati Financial Corporation.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cincinnati Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cincinnati Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.4 per share.
Cincinnati Financial Corporation'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.

Cincinnati Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 4 April 2005. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cincinnati Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Cincinnati Financial Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Cincinnati Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $48.19 up to $118.19. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
