TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.4 million Primo Water Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Primo Water Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.4% down from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Primo Water Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Primo Water Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Primo Water Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Primo Water Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 187172.7647868). Primo Water Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.27. In other words for every 100,000 Primo Water Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7270 shares are currently held short.
However Primo Water Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Primo Water Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Primo Water Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Primo Water Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Primo Water Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0427% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Primo Water Corporation shares, roughly 43 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Primo Water Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 56.59% of net profits
Recently Primo Water Corporation has paid out, on average, around 56.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Primo Water Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Primo Water Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.
Primo Water Corporation'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.
Primo Water 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 23 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Primo Water Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 July 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 Primo Water Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Primo Water Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Primo Water Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Primo Water Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.248 up to $16.34. 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 Primo Water Corporation's is 1.345. This would suggest that Primo Water 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).
