Shorting Dillards shares
There are currently 973,100 Dillards shares held short by investors – that's known as Dillards's "short interest". This figure is 20.1% down from 1.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Dillards shares can be evaluated.
Dillards's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Dillards's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dillards shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dillards shares traded daily (recently around 274887.00564972). Dillards's SIR currently stands at 3.54. In other words for every 100,000 Dillards shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3540 shares are currently held short.
However Dillards's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dillards shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dillards shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dillards's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dillards shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.2235% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dillards shares, roughly 224 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 Dillards.

Dillards share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 3.19% of net profits
Recently Dillards has paid out, on average, around 3.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dillards shareholders could enjoy a 0.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dillards's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.
While Dillards's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Dillards is investing more in its future growth.
Dillards's most recent dividend payout was on 1 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Dillards's shares ever split?
Dillards's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 7 June 1992. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dillards shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dillards shares which in turn could have impacted Dillards's share price.
