There are currently 485,514 The Andersons shares held short by investors – that's known as The Andersons's "short interest". This figure is 4.9% down from 510,606 last month.

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 SIR currently stands at 2.57. In other words for every 100,000 The Andersons shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2570 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 0.0208% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Andersons shares, roughly 21 shares are currently held short).

The Andersons share dividends

Recently The Andersons has paid out, on average, around 3.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.5% 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 2.5% 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 low, this can signify that The Andersons is investing more in its future growth.

Have The Andersons's shares ever split?

The Andersons's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 19 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.
