There are currently 4.1 million SS-and-C Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as SS-and-C Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 143.8% up from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SS-and-C Technologies shares can be evaluated.
SS-and-C Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SS-and-C Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SS-and-C Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). SS-and-C Technologies's SIR currently stands at 3. In other words for every 100,000 SS-and-C Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3000 shares are currently held short.
However SS-and-C Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SS-and-C Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable SS-and-C Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SS-and-C Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SS-and-C Technologies shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0183% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SS-and-C Technologies shares, roughly 18 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 SS-and-C Technologies.

Dividend payout ratio: 13.14% of net profits
Recently SS-and-C Technologies has paid out, on average, around 13.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SS-and-C Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 0.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SS-and-C Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.53 per share.
While SS-and-C Technologies's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that SS-and-C Technologies is investing more in its future growth.
SS-and-C Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 15 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
SS-and-C Technologies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 June 2016. 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 SS-and-C Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SS-and-C Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted SS-and-C Technologies's share price.
Over the last 12 months, SS-and-C Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.2535 up to $73.8244. 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 SS-and-C Technologies's is 1.5859. This would suggest that SS-and-C Technologies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
