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 8.2% 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 271727.908869). The Brinks Company's SIR currently stands at 12.29. In other words for every 100,000 The Brinks Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12290 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 0.0683% 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.

The Brinks Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 62.5% of net profits
Recently The Brinks Company has paid out, on average, around 62.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.03% 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 1.03% 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.
