TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.9 million Olin Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Olin Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 18.9% up from 3.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Olin Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Olin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Olin Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Olin Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Olin Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.47. In other words for every 100,000 Olin Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3470 shares are currently held short.
However Olin Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Olin Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Olin Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Olin Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Olin Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0268% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Olin Corporation 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 Olin Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 22.41% of net profits
Recently Olin Corporation has paid out, on average, around 22.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Olin Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Olin Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.
While Olin Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Olin Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Olin Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 9 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Olin Corporation's shares were split on a 1575:1000 basis on 8 February 1999. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1575 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Olin Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 36.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Olin Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Olin Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Olin Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.2238 up to $52.01. 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 Olin Corporation's is 1.3559. This would suggest that Olin Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
