La-Z-Boy Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However La-Z-Boy Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case La-Z-Boy Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0428% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares, roughly 43 shares are currently held short).

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), La-Z-Boy Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 1.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In La-Z-Boy Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted La-Z-Boy Incorporated's share price.
