There are currently 1.1 million Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Sturm Ruger-and-Company's "short interest". This figure is 31.1% down from 1.6 million 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) 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 321079.82708934). Sturm Ruger-and-Company's SIR currently stands at 3.47. In other words for every 100,000 Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3470 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 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0804% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares, roughly 80 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 Sturm Ruger-and-Company.

Dividend payout ratio: 172.2% of net profits
Recently Sturm Ruger-and-Company has paid out, on average, around 172.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.27% 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 2.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sturm Ruger-and-Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.51 per share.
Sturm Ruger-and-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.
Sturm Ruger-and-Company's most recent dividend payout was on 27 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Sturm Ruger-and-Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 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.
