There are currently 11.2 million Kohls Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Kohls Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.4% up from 11.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kohls Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Kohls Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kohls Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kohls Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 3.1 million). Kohls Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.67. In other words for every 100,000 Kohls Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3670 shares are currently held short.
However Kohls Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kohls Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kohls Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kohls Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kohls Corporation shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0721% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kohls Corporation shares, roughly 72 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 Kohls Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 12.56% of net profits
Recently Kohls Corporation has paid out, on average, around 12.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kohls Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kohls Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.704 per share.
While Kohls Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Kohls Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Kohls Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Kohls Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 April 2000. 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 Kohls Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kohls Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Kohls Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Kohls Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.2493 up to $63.72. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
