TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 187,413 Spok shares held short by investors – that's known as Spok's "short interest". This figure is 91.3% up from 97,987 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Spok shares can be evaluated.
Spok's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Spok shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Spok shares traded daily (recently around 74965.2). Spok's SIR currently stands at 2.5. In other words for every 100,000 Spok shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2500 shares are currently held short.
However Spok's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Spok shares, or, against the total number of tradable Spok shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Spok's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Spok shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.016% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Spok shares, roughly 16 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 Spok.

Dividend payout ratio: 176.99% of net profits
Recently Spok has paid out, on average, around 176.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Spok shareholders could enjoy a 4.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Spok's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.
Spok'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.
Spok's most recent dividend payout was on 10 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Spok's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.222 up to $11.798. 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 Spok's is 0.2462. This would suggest that Spok's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
