Shorting CSG Systems International shares
There are currently 1.7 million CSG Systems International shares held short by investors – that's known as CSG Systems International's "short interest". This figure is 4.1% up from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting CSG Systems International shares can be evaluated.
CSG Systems International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
CSG Systems International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CSG Systems International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CSG Systems International shares traded daily (recently around 237082.16292135). CSG Systems International's SIR currently stands at 7.12. In other words for every 100,000 CSG Systems International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7120 shares are currently held short.
However CSG Systems International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CSG Systems International shares, or, against the total number of tradable CSG Systems International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CSG Systems International's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CSG Systems International shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0552% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CSG Systems International shares, roughly 55 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 CSG Systems International.

CSG Systems International share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 32.08% of net profits
Recently CSG Systems International has paid out, on average, around 32.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CSG Systems International shareholders could enjoy a 2.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CSG Systems International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.955 per share.
While CSG Systems International's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that CSG Systems International may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
CSG Systems International's most recent dividend payout was on 24 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have CSG Systems International's shares ever split?
CSG Systems International's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 March 1999. 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 CSG Systems International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CSG Systems International shares which in turn could have impacted CSG Systems International's share price.
