Shorting Tootsie Roll Industries shares

There are currently 2.7 million Tootsie Roll Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Tootsie Roll Industries's "short interest". This figure is 1% up from 2.7 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Tootsie Roll Industries shares can be evaluated.

Tootsie Roll Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tootsie Roll Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tootsie Roll Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tootsie Roll Industries shares traded daily (recently around 189090.06896552). Tootsie Roll Industries's SIR currently stands at 14.5. In other words for every 100,000 Tootsie Roll Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 14500 shares are currently held short.

However Tootsie Roll Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tootsie Roll Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tootsie Roll Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tootsie Roll Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tootsie Roll Industries shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.1579% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tootsie Roll Industries shares, roughly 158 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 Tootsie Roll Industries.

Tootsie Roll Industries share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 53.86% of net profits

Recently Tootsie Roll Industries has paid out, on average, around 53.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tootsie Roll Industries shareholders could enjoy a 1.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tootsie Roll Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.349 per share.

Tootsie Roll Industries'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.

Tootsie Roll Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 20 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Tootsie Roll Industries's shares ever split?

Tootsie Roll Industries's shares were split on a 103:100 basis on 3 March 2021. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 103 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Tootsie Roll Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tootsie Roll Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Tootsie Roll Industries's share price.

Tootsie Roll Industries share price volatility
