TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.5 million Gold Fields shares held short by investors – that's known as Gold Fields's "short interest". This figure is 25.2% down from 6.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Gold Fields shares can be evaluated.
Gold Fields's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Gold Fields shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Gold Fields shares traded daily (recently around 7.0 million). Gold Fields's SIR currently stands at 0.65. In other words for every 100,000 Gold Fields shares traded daily on the market, roughly 650 shares are currently held short.
However Gold Fields's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Gold Fields shares, or, against the total number of tradable Gold Fields shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Gold Fields's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gold Fields shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gold Fields shares, roughly 0 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 Gold Fields.

Dividend payout ratio: 34.66% of net profits
Recently Gold Fields has paid out, on average, around 34.66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Gold Fields shareholders could enjoy a 2.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Gold Fields's case, that would currently equate to about $0.19 per share.
While Gold Fields's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Gold Fields may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Gold Fields's most recent dividend payout was on 24 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Gold Fields's shares were split on a 1161:1000 basis on 21 February 2013. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1161 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Gold Fields shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 13.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Gold Fields shares which in turn could have impacted Gold Fields's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Gold Fields's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.7638 up to $14.9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
