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.

Shorting The New York Times Company shares

There are currently 14.1 million The New York Times Company shares held short by investors – that's known as The New York Times Company's "short interest". This figure is 5.2% up from 13.4 million last month.

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

The New York Times Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The New York Times Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The New York Times Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The New York Times Company shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). The New York Times Company's SIR currently stands at 8.01. In other words for every 100,000 The New York Times Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8010 shares are currently held short.

However The New York Times Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The New York Times Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable The New York Times Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The New York Times Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The New York Times Company shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0859% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The New York Times Company shares, roughly 86 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against The New York Times Company.

The New York Times Company share dividends

26%

Dividend payout ratio: 25.77% of net profits

Recently The New York Times Company has paid out, on average, around 25.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The New York Times Company shareholders could enjoy a 0.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The New York Times Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.

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

The New York Times Company's most recent dividend payout was on 21 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have The New York Times Company's shares ever split?

The New York Times Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 July 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your The New York Times Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for The New York Times Company shares which in turn could have impacted The New York Times Company's share price.
