TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.2 million GrafTech International shares held short by investors – that's known as GrafTech International's "short interest". This figure is 15.5% down from 6.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting GrafTech International shares can be evaluated.
GrafTech International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GrafTech International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GrafTech International shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). GrafTech International's SIR currently stands at 2.32. In other words for every 100,000 GrafTech International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2320 shares are currently held short.
However GrafTech International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GrafTech International shares, or, against the total number of tradable GrafTech International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GrafTech International's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GrafTech International shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.076% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GrafTech International shares, roughly 76 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 GrafTech International.

Dividend payout ratio: 6.42% of net profits
Recently GrafTech International has paid out, on average, around 6.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GrafTech International shareholders could enjoy a 0.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GrafTech International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.04 per share.
While GrafTech International's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that GrafTech International is investing more in its future growth.
GrafTech International's most recent dividend payout was on 31 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
GrafTech International's shares were split on a 100:1 basis on 30 June 2010. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 100 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your GrafTech International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 99% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for GrafTech International shares which in turn could have impacted GrafTech International's share price.
Over the last 12 months, GrafTech International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.5375 up to $12.9335. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
