TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 15.0 million Murphy Oil Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Murphy Oil Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 14% up from 13.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Murphy Oil Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Murphy Oil Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Murphy Oil Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Murphy Oil Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). Murphy Oil Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.22. In other words for every 100,000 Murphy Oil Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7220 shares are currently held short.
However Murphy Oil Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Murphy Oil Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Murphy Oil Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Murphy Oil Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Murphy Oil Corporation shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1207% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Murphy Oil Corporation shares, roughly 121 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Murphy Oil Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 1.22% of net profits
Recently Murphy Oil Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.78% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Murphy Oil Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Murphy Oil Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.
While Murphy Oil Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Murphy Oil Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Murphy Oil Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Murphy Oil Corporation's shares were split on a 1158:1000 basis on 2 September 2013. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1158 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Murphy Oil Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 13.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Murphy Oil Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Murphy Oil Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Murphy Oil Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.7513 up to $30.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
