TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 146,692 Kimball International shares held short by investors – that's known as Kimball International's "short interest". This figure is 11.2% down from 165,179 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kimball International shares can be evaluated.
Kimball International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kimball International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kimball International shares traded daily (recently around 209560). Kimball International's SIR currently stands at 0.7. In other words for every 100,000 Kimball International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 700 shares are currently held short.
However Kimball International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kimball International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kimball International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kimball International's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kimball International shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0041% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kimball International shares, roughly 4 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 Kimball International.

Dividend payout ratio: 25.05% of net profits
Recently Kimball International has paid out, on average, around 25.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kimball International shareholders could enjoy a 3.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kimball International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.
While Kimball International's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Kimball International may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Kimball International's most recent dividend payout was on 15 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Kimball International's shares were split on a 1281:1000 basis on 3 November 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1281 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kimball International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 21.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kimball International shares which in turn could have impacted Kimball International's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Kimball International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.19 up to $22.4. 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 Kimball International's is 0.9713. This would suggest that Kimball International's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
