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

The Hackett Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The Hackett Group's SIR currently stands at 4.21. In other words for every 100,000 The Hackett Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4210 shares are currently held short.

However The Hackett Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Hackett Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Hackett Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Hackett Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Hackett Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0199% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Hackett Group shares, roughly 20 shares are currently held short).

The Hackett Group share dividends

37%

Dividend payout ratio: 37.26% of net profits

Recently The Hackett Group has paid out, on average, around 37.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Hackett Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Hackett Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.39 per share.

While The Hackett Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that The Hackett Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

The Hackett Group's most recent dividend payout was on 7 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
