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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into The Andersons's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting The Andersons shares can be evaluated.

The Andersons's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The Andersons's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Andersons shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Andersons shares traded daily (recently around 133409.96015936). The Andersons's SIR currently stands at 2.51. In other words for every 100,000 The Andersons shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2510 shares are currently held short.

However The Andersons's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Andersons shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Andersons shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Andersons's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Andersons shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.011% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Andersons shares, roughly 11 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 The Andersons.

The Andersons share dividends

32%

Dividend payout ratio: 31.82% of net profits

Recently The Andersons has paid out, on average, around 31.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Andersons shareholders could enjoy a 2.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Andersons's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.

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

The Andersons's most recent dividend payout was on 21 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have The Andersons's shares ever split?

The Andersons's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 18 February 2014. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your The Andersons shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for The Andersons shares which in turn could have impacted The Andersons's share price.
