Shorting Kimball International shares
There are currently 293,552 Kimball International shares held short by investors – that's known as Kimball International's "short interest". This figure is 31.3% down from 427,176 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)
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 194405.29801325). Kimball International's SIR currently stands at 1.51. In other words for every 100,000 Kimball International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1510 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 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kimball International shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0087% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kimball International shares, roughly 9 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.

Kimball International share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 62.07% of net profits
Recently Kimball International has paid out, on average, around 62.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.83% 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 2.83% 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.
Kimball International'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.
Kimball International's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Kimball International's shares ever split?
Kimball International's shares were split on a 1281:1000 basis on 2 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.
Kimball International share price volatility
