In this case Gilat Satellite Networks's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gilat Satellite Networks shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0363% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gilat Satellite Networks shares, roughly 36 shares are currently held short).

Recently Gilat Satellite Networks has paid out, on average, around 119.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Gilat Satellite Networks shareholders could enjoy a 6.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments.

Gilat Satellite Networks'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.

Gilat Satellite Networks's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 16 April 2003. So if you had owned 20 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Gilat Satellite Networks shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Gilat Satellite Networks shares which in turn could have impacted Gilat Satellite Networks's share price.
