However Monolithic Power Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Monolithic Power Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Monolithic Power Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Monolithic Power Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Monolithic Power Systems shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0231% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Monolithic Power Systems shares, roughly 23 shares are currently held short).

Recently Monolithic Power Systems has paid out, on average, around 39.92% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Monolithic Power Systems shareholders could enjoy a 0.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Monolithic Power Systems's case, that would currently equate to about $2 per share.
While Monolithic Power Systems's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Monolithic Power Systems may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Monolithic Power Systems's most recent dividend payout was on 15 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Monolithic Power Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $129.1956 up to $358.69. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Monolithic Power Systems'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).
