TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 495,812 Collectors Universe shares held short by investors – that's known as Collectors Universe's "short interest". This figure is 4.8% down from 520,625 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Collectors Universe shares can be evaluated.
Collectors Universe's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Collectors Universe shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Collectors Universe shares traded daily (recently around 130821.10817942). Collectors Universe's SIR currently stands at 3.79. In other words for every 100,000 Collectors Universe shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3790 shares are currently held short.
However Collectors Universe's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Collectors Universe shares, or, against the total number of tradable Collectors Universe shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Collectors Universe's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Collectors Universe shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0551% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Collectors Universe shares, roughly 55 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 Collectors Universe.

Dividend payout ratio: 58.84% of net profits
Recently Collectors Universe has paid out, on average, around 58.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.16% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Collectors Universe shareholders could enjoy a 1.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Collectors Universe's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.
Collectors Universe'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.
Collectors Universe's most recent dividend payout was on 28 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Collectors Universe's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 16 October 2008. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Collectors Universe shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Collectors Universe shares which in turn could have impacted Collectors Universe's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Collectors Universe's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.26 up to $64.04. 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 Collectors Universe's is 1.5543. This would suggest that Collectors Universe's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
