Shorting Graham Holdings Company shares
There are currently 139,528 Graham Holdings Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Graham Holdings Company's "short interest". This figure is 108.1% up from 67,038 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Graham Holdings Company shares can be evaluated.
Graham Holdings Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Graham Holdings Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Graham Holdings Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Graham Holdings Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Graham Holdings Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Graham Holdings Company shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.036% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Graham Holdings Company shares, roughly 36 shares are currently held short).

Graham Holdings Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 6.36% of net profits
Recently Graham Holdings Company has paid out, on average, around 6.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.91% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Graham Holdings Company shareholders could enjoy a 0.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Graham Holdings Company's case, that would currently equate to about $5.86 per share.
While Graham Holdings Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Graham Holdings Company is investing more in its future growth.
Graham Holdings Company's most recent dividend payout was on 4 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Graham Holdings Company's shares ever split?
Graham Holdings Company's shares were split on a 1655:1000 basis on 30 June 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1655 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Graham Holdings Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 39.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Graham Holdings Company shares which in turn could have impacted Graham Holdings Company's share price.
Graham Holdings Company share price volatility
