TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 17,387 RF Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as RF Industries's "short interest". This figure is 3.3% up from 16,824 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting RF Industries shares can be evaluated.
RF Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RF Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RF Industries shares traded daily (recently around 124192.85714286). RF Industries's SIR currently stands at 0.14. In other words for every 100,000 RF Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 140 shares are currently held short.
However RF Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RF Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable RF Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RF Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RF Industries shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0018% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RF Industries shares, roughly 2 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 RF Industries.

Dividend payout ratio: 62.5% of net profits
Recently RF Industries has paid out, on average, around 62.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), RF Industries shareholders could enjoy a 1.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In RF Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.04 per share.
RF Industries'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.
RF Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 15 April 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
RF Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 March 2011. 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 RF Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for RF Industries shares which in turn could have impacted RF Industries's share price.
Over the last 12 months, RF Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.2933 up to $6.49. 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 RF Industries's is 0.9771. This would suggest that RF Industries's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
