There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Arcosa stocks can be evaluated.
Arcosa's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Arcosa's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arcosa stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arcosa stocks traded daily (recently around 231771.76470588). Arcosa's SIR currently stands at 2.55. In other words for every 100,000 Arcosa stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2550 stocks are currently held short.
However Arcosa's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arcosa stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Arcosa stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arcosa's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Arcosa stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0125% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Arcosa stocks, roughly 13 stocks are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Arcosa.

Arcosa stock dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 9.57% of net profits
Recently Arcosa has paid out, on average, around 9.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Arcosa shareholders could enjoy a 0.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Arcosa's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.
While Arcosa's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Arcosa is investing more in its future growth.
Arcosa's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 13 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
