TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.3 million The Brinks Company shares held short by investors – that's known as The Brinks Company's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% down from 3.5 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) is the quantity of The Brinks Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Brinks Company shares traded daily (recently around 193288.25248393). The Brinks Company's SIR currently stands at 17.11. In other words for every 100,000 The Brinks Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 17110 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 0.0675% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Brinks Company shares, roughly 68 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.

Dividend payout ratio: 36.95% of net profits
Recently The Brinks Company has paid out, on average, around 36.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.26% 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 1.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Brinks Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.65 per share.
While The Brinks Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that The Brinks Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The Brinks Company's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, The Brinks Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.3697 up to $84.2754. 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 The Brinks Company's is 1.5984. 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).
