TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.2 million CVR Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as CVR Energy's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% up from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting CVR Energy shares can be evaluated.
CVR Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CVR Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CVR Energy shares traded daily (recently around 828943.18181818). CVR Energy's SIR currently stands at 2.64. In other words for every 100,000 CVR Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2640 shares are currently held short.
However CVR Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CVR Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable CVR Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CVR Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CVR Energy shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0746% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CVR Energy shares, roughly 75 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 CVR Energy.

Dividend payout ratio: 198.02% of net profits
Recently CVR Energy has paid out, on average, around 198.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CVR Energy shareholders could enjoy a 9.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CVR Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $1.6 per share.
CVR Energy'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.
CVR Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 26 May 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 May 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, CVR Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.41 up to $48.43. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while CVR Energy's is 1.9625. This would suggest that CVR Energy's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
