In this case Helmerich-and-Payne's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Helmerich-and-Payne shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0699% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Helmerich-and-Payne shares, roughly 70 shares are currently held short).

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Helmerich-and-Payne shareholders could enjoy a 6.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Helmerich-and-Payne's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
Helmerich-and-Payne's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Helmerich-and-Payne's most recent dividend payout was on 1 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Helmerich-and-Payne's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 10 July 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Helmerich-and-Payne shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Helmerich-and-Payne shares which in turn could have impacted Helmerich-and-Payne's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Helmerich-and-Payne's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.4 up to $47.325. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Helmerich-and-Payne's is 2.0243. This would suggest that Helmerich-and-Payne's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
