That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

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

Shorting The Brinks Company shares

There are currently 3.4 million The Brinks Company shares held short by investors – that's known as The Brinks Company's "short interest". This figure is 6.1% down from 3.6 million last month.

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

The Brinks Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The Brinks Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Brinks Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Brinks Company shares traded daily (recently around 324453.77268386). The Brinks Company's SIR currently stands at 10.47. In other words for every 100,000 The Brinks Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10470 shares are currently held short.

However The Brinks Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Brinks Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Brinks Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Brinks Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Brinks Company shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.091% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Brinks Company shares, roughly 91 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against The Brinks Company.

The Brinks Company share dividends

52%

Dividend payout ratio: 52.17% of net profits

Recently The Brinks Company has paid out, on average, around 52.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.77% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Brinks Company shareholders could enjoy a 0.77% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Brinks Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

The Brinks 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.

The Brinks Company's most recent dividend payout was on 28 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

The Brinks Company share price volatility

BCO.US volatility(beta: 1.57)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while The Brinks Company's is 1.5709. This would suggest that The Brinks Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
