Shorting Franchise Group shares
There are currently 976,402 Franchise Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Franchise Group's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% down from 983,826 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Franchise Group shares can be evaluated.
Franchise Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Franchise Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Franchise Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Franchise Group shares traded daily (recently around 197652.22672065). Franchise Group's SIR currently stands at 4.94. In other words for every 100,000 Franchise Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4940 shares are currently held short.
However Franchise Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Franchise Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Franchise Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Franchise Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Franchise Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0362% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Franchise Group shares, roughly 36 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 Franchise Group.

Franchise Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 98.5% of net profits
Recently Franchise Group has paid out, on average, around 98.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Franchise Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Franchise Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.25 per share.
Franchise Group'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.
Franchise Group's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Franchise Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Franchise Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.7622 up to $40.6055. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Franchise Group's is 1.9548. This would suggest that Franchise Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
