TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.5 million SunCoke Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as SunCoke Energy's "short interest". This figure is 9.8% down from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SunCoke Energy shares can be evaluated.
SunCoke Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SunCoke Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SunCoke Energy shares traded daily (recently around 601622.98387097). SunCoke Energy's SIR currently stands at 2.48. In other words for every 100,000 SunCoke Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2480 shares are currently held short.
However SunCoke Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SunCoke Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable SunCoke Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SunCoke Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SunCoke Energy shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0215% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SunCoke Energy shares, roughly 22 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 SunCoke Energy.

Dividend payout ratio: 100% of net profits
Recently SunCoke Energy has paid out, on average, around 100% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.49% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SunCoke Energy shareholders could enjoy a 6.49% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SunCoke Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.
SunCoke Energy'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.
SunCoke Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, SunCoke Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.43 up to $6.64. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while SunCoke Energy's is 0.7965. This would suggest that SunCoke Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
