Star Group L-P's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Star Group L-P's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Star Group L-P shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Star Group L-P shares traded daily (recently around 70465.789473684). Star Group L-P's SIR currently stands at 0.38. In other words for every 100,000 Star Group L-P shares traded daily on the market, roughly 380 shares are currently held short.
However Star Group L-P's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Star Group L-P shares, or, against the total number of tradable Star Group L-P shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Star Group L-P's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Star Group L-P shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0008% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Star Group L-P shares, roughly 1 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 Star Group L-P.

Recently Star Group L-P has paid out, on average, around 15.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Star Group L-P shareholders could enjoy a 4.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Star Group L-P's case, that would currently equate to about $0.54 per share.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Star Group L-P shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 95% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Star Group L-P shares which in turn could have impacted Star Group L-P's share price.
