There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting CSW Industrials shares can be evaluated.

CSW Industrials's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CSW Industrials's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CSW Industrials shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CSW Industrials shares traded daily (recently around 55032.352941176). CSW Industrials's SIR currently stands at 3.74. In other words for every 100,000 CSW Industrials shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3740 shares are currently held short.

However CSW Industrials's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CSW Industrials shares, or, against the total number of tradable CSW Industrials shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CSW Industrials's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CSW Industrials shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0133% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CSW Industrials shares, roughly 13 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 CSW Industrials.

CSW Industrials share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 30.65% of net profits

Recently CSW Industrials has paid out, on average, around 30.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CSW Industrials shareholders could enjoy a 0.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CSW Industrials's case, that would currently equate to about $0.54 per share.

While CSW Industrials's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that CSW Industrials may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

CSW Industrials's most recent dividend payout was on 12 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
