There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Parker-Hannifin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 783461.81818182).

In other words for every 100,000 Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1650 shares are currently held short.
However Parker-Hannifin Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Parker-Hannifin Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0101% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares, roughly 10 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 Parker-Hannifin Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 31.77% of net profits
Recently Parker-Hannifin Corporation has paid out, on average, around 31.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Parker-Hannifin Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Parker-Hannifin Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $3.52 per share.
While Parker-Hannifin Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Parker-Hannifin Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Parker-Hannifin Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 4 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Parker-Hannifin Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 2 October 2007. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Parker-Hannifin Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Parker-Hannifin Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $91.7067 up to $280.29. 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 Parker-Hannifin Corporation's is 1.7554. This would suggest that Parker-Hannifin 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).
