Inter Parfums's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Inter Parfums's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Inter Parfums shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Inter Parfums shares traded daily (recently around 133692.72727273). Inter Parfums's SIR currently stands at 3.3. In other words for every 100,000 Inter Parfums shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3300 shares are currently held short.

However Inter Parfums's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Inter Parfums shares, or, against the total number of tradable Inter Parfums shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float").

66%

Dividend payout ratio: 66% of net profits

Recently Inter Parfums has paid out, on average, around 66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Inter Parfums shareholders could enjoy a 3.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Inter Parfums's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.

Inter Parfums'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.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Inter Parfums shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Inter Parfums shares which in turn could have impacted Inter Parfums's share price.
