TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 157,439 Lifetime Brands shares held short by investors – that's known as Lifetime Brands's "short interest". This figure is 12.5% down from 180,004 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lifetime Brands shares can be evaluated.
Lifetime Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lifetime Brands shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lifetime Brands shares traded daily (recently around 58965.917602996). Lifetime Brands's SIR currently stands at 2.67. In other words for every 100,000 Lifetime Brands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2670 shares are currently held short.
However Lifetime Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lifetime Brands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lifetime Brands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lifetime Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lifetime Brands shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0123% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lifetime Brands shares, roughly 12 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 Lifetime Brands.

Dividend payout ratio: 38.64% of net profits
Recently Lifetime Brands has paid out, on average, around 38.64% 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), Lifetime Brands shareholders could enjoy a 1.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lifetime Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.17 per share.
While Lifetime Brands's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Lifetime Brands may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Lifetime Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 16 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Lifetime Brands's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 13 February 1997. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lifetime Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lifetime Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Lifetime Brands's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Lifetime Brands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.26 up to $11.2. 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 Lifetime Brands's is 1.2454. This would suggest that Lifetime Brands's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
