Shorting RGC Resources shares
There are currently 122,072 RGC Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as RGC Resources's "short interest". This figure is 42.8% down from 213,254 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting RGC Resources shares can be evaluated.
RGC Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
RGC Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RGC Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RGC Resources shares traded daily (recently around 92478.787878788). RGC Resources's SIR currently stands at 1.32. In other words for every 100,000 RGC Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1320 shares are currently held short.
However RGC Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RGC Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable RGC Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RGC Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RGC Resources shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0167% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RGC Resources shares, roughly 17 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 RGC Resources.

RGC Resources share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 57.48% of net profits
Recently RGC Resources has paid out, on average, around 57.48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), RGC Resources shareholders could enjoy a 2.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In RGC Resources's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.
RGC Resources'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.
RGC Resources's most recent dividend payout was on 31 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have RGC Resources's shares ever split?
RGC Resources's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 March 2017. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your RGC Resources shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for RGC Resources shares which in turn could have impacted RGC Resources's share price.
RGC Resources share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, RGC Resources's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.1659 up to $26.772. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that RGC Resources's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, RGC Resources has bucked the trend.
