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

Dividend payout ratio: 26.24% of net profits
Recently Core-Mark Holding Company has paid out, on average, around 26.24% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Core-Mark Holding Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Core-Mark Holding Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.
While Core-Mark Holding Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Core-Mark Holding Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Core-Mark Holding Company's most recent dividend payout was on 18 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Core-Mark Holding Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 June 2016. 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 Core-Mark Holding Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Core-Mark Holding Company shares which in turn could have impacted Core-Mark Holding Company's share price.
