There are currently 70,986 Graham Holdings Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Graham Holdings Company's "short interest". This figure is 24% up from 57,232 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) is the quantity of Graham Holdings Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Graham Holdings Company shares traded daily (recently around 31549.333333333). Graham Holdings Company's SIR currently stands at 2.25. In other words for every 100,000 Graham Holdings Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2250 shares are currently held short.
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 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Graham Holdings Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0308% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Graham Holdings Company shares, roughly 31 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 Graham Holdings Company.

Dividend payout ratio: 27.27% of net profits
Recently Graham Holdings Company has paid out, on average, around 27.27% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.05% 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 1.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Graham Holdings Company's case, that would currently equate to about $5.8 per share.
While Graham Holdings Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Graham Holdings Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Graham Holdings Company's most recent dividend payout was on 5 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Graham Holdings Company's shares were split on a 1655:1000 basis on 1 July 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.
Over the last 12 months, Graham Holdings Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $264.7662 up to $616.932. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Graham Holdings Company's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
