There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Franklin Electric CoInc shares can be evaluated.

Franklin Electric CoInc's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Franklin Electric CoInc's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Franklin Electric CoInc shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Franklin Electric CoInc shares traded daily (recently around 157823.34004024). Franklin Electric CoInc's SIR currently stands at 4.97. In other words for every 100,000 Franklin Electric CoInc shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4970 shares are currently held short.

However Franklin Electric CoInc's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Franklin Electric CoInc shares, or, against the total number of tradable Franklin Electric CoInc shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Franklin Electric CoInc's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Franklin Electric CoInc shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0202% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Franklin Electric CoInc shares, roughly 20 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 Franklin Electric CoInc.

Franklin Electric CoInc share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 34.17% of net profits

Recently Franklin Electric CoInc has paid out, on average, around 34.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Franklin Electric CoInc shareholders could enjoy a 0.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Franklin Electric CoInc's case, that would currently equate to about $0.66 per share.

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

Franklin Electric CoInc's most recent dividend payout was on 18 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Franklin Electric CoInc's shares ever split?

Franklin Electric CoInc's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 March 2013. 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 Franklin Electric CoInc shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Franklin Electric CoInc shares which in turn could have impacted Franklin Electric CoInc's share price.

Franklin Electric CoInc share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Franklin Electric CoInc's shares have ranged in value from as little as $53.6768 up to $87.7. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FELE.US volatility(beta: 1)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

This would suggest that Franklin Electric CoInc's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
