Shorting GAMCO Investors shares
There are currently 66,859 GAMCO Investors shares held short by investors – that's known as GAMCO Investors's "short interest". This figure is 43.5% down from 118,237 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting GAMCO Investors shares can be evaluated.
GAMCO Investors's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
GAMCO Investors's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GAMCO Investors shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GAMCO Investors shares traded daily (recently around 36938.674033149). GAMCO Investors's SIR currently stands at 1.81. In other words for every 100,000 GAMCO Investors shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1810 shares are currently held short.
However GAMCO Investors's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GAMCO Investors shares, or, against the total number of tradable GAMCO Investors shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GAMCO Investors's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GAMCO Investors shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.013% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GAMCO Investors 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 GAMCO Investors.

GAMCO Investors share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 80.9% of net profits
Recently GAMCO Investors has paid out, on average, around 80.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GAMCO Investors shareholders could enjoy a 0.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GAMCO Investors's case, that would currently equate to about $0.08 per share.
GAMCO Investors'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.
GAMCO Investors's most recent dividend payout was on 28 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have GAMCO Investors's shares ever split?
GAMCO Investors's shares were split on a 1857:1000 basis on 30 November 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1857 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your GAMCO Investors shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 46.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for GAMCO Investors shares which in turn could have impacted GAMCO Investors's share price.
GAMCO Investors share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, GAMCO Investors's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.1879 up to $28.41. 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 GAMCO Investors's is 1.648. This would suggest that GAMCO Investors's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
