That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Shorting Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares

There are currently 859,732 Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Sturm Ruger-and-Company's "short interest". This figure is 9.2% up from 787,460 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares can be evaluated.

Sturm Ruger-and-Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sturm Ruger-and-Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares traded daily (recently around 114174.23638778). Sturm Ruger-and-Company's SIR currently stands at 7.53. In other words for every 100,000 Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7530 shares are currently held short.

However Sturm Ruger-and-Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sturm Ruger-and-Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0529% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares, roughly 53 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 Sturm Ruger-and-Company.

Sturm Ruger-and-Company share dividends

40%

Dividend payout ratio: 39.97% of net profits

Recently Sturm Ruger-and-Company has paid out, on average, around 39.97% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sturm Ruger-and-Company shareholders could enjoy a 5.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sturm Ruger-and-Company's case, that would currently equate to about $3.13 per share.

While Sturm Ruger-and-Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Sturm Ruger-and-Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Sturm Ruger-and-Company's most recent dividend payout was on 26 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sturm Ruger-and-Company's shares ever split?

Sturm Ruger-and-Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 September 1996. 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 Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares which in turn could have impacted Sturm Ruger-and-Company's share price.

Sturm Ruger-and-Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sturm Ruger-and-Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $57.6536 up to $91.3744. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
