TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.2 million The Greenbrier Companies shares held short by investors – that's known as The Greenbrier Companies's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% down from 4.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting The Greenbrier Companies shares can be evaluated.
The Greenbrier Companies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Greenbrier Companies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Greenbrier Companies shares traded daily (recently around 276691.67217449). The Greenbrier Companies's SIR currently stands at 15.13. In other words for every 100,000 The Greenbrier Companies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15130 shares are currently held short.
However The Greenbrier Companies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Greenbrier Companies shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Greenbrier Companies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Greenbrier Companies's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Greenbrier Companies shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1809% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Greenbrier Companies shares, roughly 181 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 Greenbrier Companies.

Recently The Greenbrier Companies has paid out, on average, around 54.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Greenbrier Companies shareholders could enjoy a 2.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Greenbrier Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.
The Greenbrier Companies'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 Greenbrier Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 2 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
