There are currently 1.9 million Caleres stocks held short by investors – that's known as Caleres's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% up from 1.9 million last month.

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

Caleres's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Caleres's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Caleres stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Caleres stocks traded daily (recently around 542387.78409091). Caleres's SIR currently stands at 3.52. In other words for every 100,000 Caleres stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3520 stocks are currently held short.

However Caleres's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Caleres stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Caleres stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Caleres's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Caleres stocks in existence, roughly 50 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0522% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Caleres stocks, roughly 52 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 Caleres.

Caleres stock dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 17.61% of net profits

Recently Caleres has paid out, on average, around 17.61% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Caleres shareholders could enjoy a 1.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Caleres's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.

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

Caleres's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 9 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Caleres stocks ever split?

Caleres stocks were split on a 3:2 basis on 2 April 2007. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Caleres stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Caleres stocks which in turn could have impacted Caleres's stock price.

Caleres stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Caleres's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $5.8766 up to $29.36. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Caleres's is 2.6942. This would suggest that Caleres's stocks are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
