Ocean Bio-Chem's SIR currently stands at 3.58. In other words for every 100,000 Ocean Bio-Chem shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3580 shares are currently held short.
However Ocean Bio-Chem's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ocean Bio-Chem shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ocean Bio-Chem shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ocean Bio-Chem's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ocean Bio-Chem shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0269% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ocean Bio-Chem shares, roughly 27 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 Ocean Bio-Chem.

Dividend payout ratio: 10.65% of net profits
Recently Ocean Bio-Chem has paid out, on average, around 10.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ocean Bio-Chem shareholders could enjoy a 1.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ocean Bio-Chem's case, that would currently equate to about $0.06 per share.
While Ocean Bio-Chem's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ocean Bio-Chem is investing more in its future growth.
Ocean Bio-Chem's most recent dividend payout was on 24 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Ocean Bio-Chem's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 24 September 2002. 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 Ocean Bio-Chem shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ocean Bio-Chem shares which in turn could have impacted Ocean Bio-Chem's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Ocean Bio-Chem's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.6579 up to $19.8732. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
