TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 498,490 Helios Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Helios Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 6.3% down from 532,132 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Helios Technologies shares can be evaluated.
Helios Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Helios Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Helios Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 91298.534798535). Helios Technologies's SIR currently stands at 5.46. In other words for every 100,000 Helios Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5460 shares are currently held short.
However Helios Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Helios Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Helios Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Helios Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Helios Technologies shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.023% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Helios Technologies shares, roughly 23 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Helios Technologies.

Dividend payout ratio: 16.51% of net profits
Recently Helios Technologies has paid out, on average, around 16.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Helios Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 0.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Helios Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.
While Helios Technologies's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Helios Technologies is investing more in its future growth.
Helios Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 20 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Helios Technologies's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 18 July 2011. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Helios Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Helios Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Helios Technologies's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Helios Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.812 up to $54.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Helios Technologies's is 1.2. This would suggest that Helios Technologies'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).
