TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 165,644 Miller Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Miller Industries's "short interest". This figure is 16.1% down from 197,472 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Miller Industries shares can be evaluated.
Miller Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Miller Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Miller Industries shares traded daily (recently around 53606.472491909). Miller Industries's SIR currently stands at 3.09. In other words for every 100,000 Miller Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3090 shares are currently held short.
However Miller Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Miller Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Miller Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Miller Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Miller Industries shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0172% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Miller Industries shares, roughly 17 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 Miller Industries.

Dividend payout ratio: 27.83% of net profits
Recently Miller Industries has paid out, on average, around 27.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Miller Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Miller Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.
While Miller Industries's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Miller Industries may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Miller Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Miller Industries's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 1 October 2001. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Miller Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Miller Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Miller Industries's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Miller Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.9605 up to $37.4911. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
