There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ABM Industries Incorporated stocks can be evaluated.

ABM Industries Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ABM Industries Incorporated stock dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22.22% of net profits

Recently ABM Industries Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 22.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ABM Industries Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 1.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ABM Industries Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $0.755 per share.

While ABM Industries Incorporated's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that ABM Industries Incorporated is investing more in its future growth.

Have ABM Industries Incorporated stocks ever split?

ABM Industries Incorporated stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 May 2002. 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 ABM Industries Incorporated stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for ABM Industries Incorporated stocks which in turn could have impacted ABM Industries Incorporated's stock price.

ABM Industries Incorporated stock price volatility
