TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 338,100 Resources Connection shares held short by investors – that's known as Resources Connection's "short interest". This figure is 19.9% up from 282,021 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Resources Connection shares can be evaluated.
Resources Connection's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Resources Connection shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Resources Connection shares traded daily (recently around 163333.33333333). Resources Connection's SIR currently stands at 2.07. In other words for every 100,000 Resources Connection shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2070 shares are currently held short.
However Resources Connection's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Resources Connection shares, or, against the total number of tradable Resources Connection shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Resources Connection's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Resources Connection shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0111% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Resources Connection shares, roughly 11 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 Resources Connection.

Dividend payout ratio: 60.22% of net profits
Recently Resources Connection has paid out, on average, around 60.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Resources Connection shareholders could enjoy a 4.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Resources Connection's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.
Resources Connection'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.
Resources Connection's most recent dividend payout was on 17 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Resources Connection's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 March 2005. 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 Resources Connection shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Resources Connection shares which in turn could have impacted Resources Connection's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Resources Connection's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.3569 up to $17.0284. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Resources Connection's is 1.0192. This would suggest that Resources Connection'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).
