TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 665,491 Mueller Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Mueller Industries's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% up from 624,423 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Mueller Industries shares can be evaluated.
Mueller Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mueller Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mueller Industries shares traded daily (recently around 180839.94565217). Mueller Industries's SIR currently stands at 3.68. In other words for every 100,000 Mueller Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3680 shares are currently held short.
However Mueller Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mueller Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mueller Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mueller Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mueller Industries shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0187% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mueller Industries shares, roughly 19 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 Mueller Industries.

Dividend payout ratio: 7.34% of net profits
Recently Mueller Industries has paid out, on average, around 7.34% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mueller Industries shareholders could enjoy a 1.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mueller Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.49 per share.
While Mueller Industries's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Mueller Industries is investing more in its future growth.
Mueller Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 16 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Mueller Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 March 2014. 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 Mueller Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mueller Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Mueller Industries's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Mueller Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.4357 up to $49.65. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Mueller Industries's is 1.1942. This would suggest that Mueller Industries'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).
