TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 10.2 million Restaurant Brands International shares held short by investors – that's known as Restaurant Brands International's "short interest". This figure is 4% down from 10.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Restaurant Brands International shares can be evaluated.
Restaurant Brands International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Restaurant Brands International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Restaurant Brands International shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Restaurant Brands International's SIR currently stands at 5.04. In other words for every 100,000 Restaurant Brands International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5040 shares are currently held short.
However Restaurant Brands International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Restaurant Brands International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Restaurant Brands International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Restaurant Brands International's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Restaurant Brands International shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0346% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Restaurant Brands International shares, roughly 35 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 Restaurant Brands International.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Restaurant Brands International is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 4.97/100

Dividend payout ratio: 90.35% of net profits
Recently Restaurant Brands International has paid out, on average, around 90.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Restaurant Brands International shareholders could enjoy a 3.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Restaurant Brands International's case, that would currently equate to about $2.08 per share.
Restaurant Brands International'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.
Restaurant Brands International's most recent dividend payout was on 2 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Restaurant Brands International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.08 up to $69.86. 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 Restaurant Brands International's is 1.2101. This would suggest that Restaurant Brands International'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).
