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 183787.61682243). Sturm Ruger-and-Company's SIR currently stands at 4.28. In other words for every 100,000 Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4280 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 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0486% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sturm Ruger-and-Company shares, roughly 49 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.

Recently Sturm Ruger-and-Company has paid out, on average, around 1.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.47% 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 4.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sturm Ruger-and-Company's case, that would currently equate to about $2.55 per share.
While Sturm Ruger-and-Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Sturm Ruger-and-Company is investing more in its future growth.

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.
