TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.3 million QEP Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as QEP Resources's "short interest". This figure is 31.7% up from 3.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting QEP Resources shares can be evaluated.
QEP Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of QEP Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of QEP Resources shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). QEP Resources's SIR currently stands at 1.54. In other words for every 100,000 QEP Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1540 shares are currently held short.
However QEP Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of QEP Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable QEP Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case QEP Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 QEP Resources shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0245% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable QEP Resources shares, roughly 25 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 QEP Resources.

Dividend payout ratio: 11.11% of net profits
Recently QEP Resources has paid out, on average, around 11.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), QEP Resources shareholders could enjoy a 6.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In QEP Resources's case, that would currently equate to about $0.08 per share.
While QEP Resources's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that QEP Resources is investing more in its future growth.
