Shorting Perrigo Company shares
There are currently 4.4 million Perrigo Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Perrigo Company's "short interest". This figure is 34% down from 6.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Perrigo Company shares can be evaluated.
Perrigo Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Perrigo Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Perrigo Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Perrigo Company shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Perrigo Company's SIR currently stands at 3.88. In other words for every 100,000 Perrigo Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3880 shares are currently held short.
However Perrigo Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Perrigo Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Perrigo Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Perrigo Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Perrigo Company shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0331% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Perrigo Company shares, roughly 33 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 Perrigo Company.

Perrigo Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 27.43% of net profits
Recently Perrigo Company has paid out, on average, around 27.43% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Perrigo Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Perrigo Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.91 per share.
While Perrigo Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Perrigo Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Perrigo Company's most recent dividend payout was on 21 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Perrigo Company's shares ever split?
Perrigo Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 August 1993. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Perrigo Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Perrigo Company shares which in turn could have impacted Perrigo Company's share price.
Perrigo Company share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Perrigo Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.7869 up to $55.9101. 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 Perrigo Company's is 1.1855. This would suggest that Perrigo Company's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
