TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 134,500 Coca-Cola Consolidated shares held short by investors – that's known as Coca-Cola Consolidated's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% down from 146,480 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Coca-Cola Consolidated shares can be evaluated.
Coca-Cola Consolidated's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Coca-Cola Consolidated shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Coca-Cola Consolidated shares traded daily (recently around 22529.313232831). Coca-Cola Consolidated's SIR currently stands at 5.97. In other words for every 100,000 Coca-Cola Consolidated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5970 shares are currently held short.
However Coca-Cola Consolidated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Coca-Cola Consolidated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Coca-Cola Consolidated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Coca-Cola Consolidated's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Coca-Cola Consolidated shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0289% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Coca-Cola Consolidated shares, roughly 29 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 Coca-Cola Consolidated.

Dividend payout ratio: 6.31% of net profits
Recently Coca-Cola Consolidated has paid out, on average, around 6.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Coca-Cola Consolidated shareholders could enjoy a 0.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Coca-Cola Consolidated's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
While Coca-Cola Consolidated's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Coca-Cola Consolidated is investing more in its future growth.
Coca-Cola Consolidated's most recent dividend payout was on 6 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Coca-Cola Consolidated's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 March 1984. 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 Coca-Cola Consolidated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Coca-Cola Consolidated shares which in turn could have impacted Coca-Cola Consolidated's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Coca-Cola Consolidated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $187.4751 up to $291.9777. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Coca-Cola Consolidated's is 1.0315. This would suggest that Coca-Cola Consolidated's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
