TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.2 million Sonoco Products Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Sonoco Products Company's "short interest". This figure is 17.2% down from 2.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sonoco Products Company shares can be evaluated.
Sonoco Products Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sonoco Products Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sonoco Products Company shares traded daily (recently around 419376.64783427). Sonoco Products Company's SIR currently stands at 5.31. In other words for every 100,000 Sonoco Products Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5310 shares are currently held short.
However Sonoco Products Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sonoco Products Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sonoco Products Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sonoco Products Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sonoco Products Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0229% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sonoco Products Company shares, roughly 23 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 Sonoco Products Company.

Dividend payout ratio: 52.05% of net profits
Recently Sonoco Products Company has paid out, on average, around 52.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sonoco Products Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sonoco Products Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.76 per share.
Sonoco Products Company'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.
Sonoco Products Company's most recent dividend payout was on 9 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Sonoco Products Company's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 12 May 1998. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sonoco Products Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sonoco Products Company shares which in turn could have impacted Sonoco Products Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Sonoco Products Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $46.8148 up to $69.3317. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
