TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 16,937 Investors Title Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Investors Title Company's "short interest". This figure is 13.2% down from 19,508 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Investors Title Company shares can be evaluated.
Investors Title Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Investors Title Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Investors Title Company shares traded daily (recently around 9204.8913043478). Investors Title Company's SIR currently stands at 1.84. In other words for every 100,000 Investors Title Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1840 shares are currently held short.
However Investors Title Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Investors Title Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Investors Title Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Investors Title Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Investors Title Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0142% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Investors Title Company shares, roughly 14 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 Investors Title Company.

Dividend payout ratio: 68.75% of net profits
Recently Investors Title Company has paid out, on average, around 68.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.16% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Investors Title Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Investors Title Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.76 per share.
Investors Title Company'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.
Investors Title Company's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Investors Title Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 September 1987. 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 Investors Title Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Investors Title Company shares which in turn could have impacted Investors Title Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Investors Title Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $96.45 up to $178.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
