There are currently 6,070 Wayside Technology Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Wayside Technology Group's "short interest". This figure is 502.8% up from 1,007 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Wayside Technology Group shares can be evaluated.
Wayside Technology Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wayside Technology Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wayside Technology Group shares traded daily (recently around 21678.571428571). Wayside Technology Group's SIR currently stands at 0.28. In other words for every 100,000 Wayside Technology Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 280 shares are currently held short.
However Wayside Technology Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Wayside Technology Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Wayside Technology Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Wayside Technology Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Wayside Technology Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0018% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Wayside Technology Group shares, roughly 2 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Wayside Technology Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 48.33% of net profits
Recently Wayside Technology Group has paid out, on average, around 48.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wayside Technology Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wayside Technology Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
While Wayside Technology Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Wayside Technology Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Wayside Technology Group's most recent dividend payout was on 18 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Wayside Technology Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.0967 up to $26.1135. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
