Shorting Myers Industries shares
There are currently 332,945 Myers Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Myers Industries's "short interest". This figure is 35.4% down from 515,642 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Myers Industries shares can be evaluated.
Myers Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Myers Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Myers Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Myers Industries shares traded daily (recently around 111726.51006711). Myers Industries's SIR currently stands at 2.98. In other words for every 100,000 Myers Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2980 shares are currently held short.
However Myers Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Myers Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Myers Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Myers Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Myers Industries shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0093% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Myers Industries shares, roughly 9 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 Myers Industries.

Myers Industries share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 62.79% of net profits
Recently Myers Industries has paid out, on average, around 62.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.57% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Myers Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Myers Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.54 per share.
Myers Industries's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Myers Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 1 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Myers Industries's shares ever split?
Myers Industries's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 10 August 2004. 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 Myers Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Myers Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Myers Industries's share price.
Myers Industries share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Myers Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.4859 up to $23.6652. 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 Myers Industries's is 1.4831. This would suggest that Myers Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
