Shorting Church-and-Dwight CoInc shares

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Church-and-Dwight CoInc shares can be evaluated.

Church-and-Dwight CoInc's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Church-and-Dwight CoInc's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Church-and-Dwight CoInc shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Church-and-Dwight CoInc shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Church-and-Dwight CoInc's SIR currently stands at 4.3. In other words for every 100,000 Church-and-Dwight CoInc shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4300 shares are currently held short.

However Church-and-Dwight CoInc's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Church-and-Dwight CoInc shares, or, against the total number of tradable Church-and-Dwight CoInc shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Church-and-Dwight CoInc's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Church-and-Dwight CoInc shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0232% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Church-and-Dwight CoInc shares, roughly 23 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 Church-and-Dwight CoInc.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Church-and-Dwight CoInc is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Church-and-Dwight CoInc share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 35.37% of net profits

Recently Church-and-Dwight CoInc has paid out, on average, around 35.37% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Church-and-Dwight CoInc shareholders could enjoy a 1.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Church-and-Dwight CoInc's case, that would currently equate to about $0.985 per share.

While Church-and-Dwight CoInc's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Church-and-Dwight CoInc may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Church-and-Dwight CoInc's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Church-and-Dwight CoInc's shares ever split?

Church-and-Dwight CoInc's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 September 2016. 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 Church-and-Dwight CoInc shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Church-and-Dwight CoInc shares which in turn could have impacted Church-and-Dwight CoInc's share price.

Church-and-Dwight CoInc share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Church-and-Dwight CoInc's shares have ranged in value from as little as $77.1639 up to $93.5297. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Church-and-Dwight CoInc's is 0.3804. This would suggest that Church-and-Dwight CoInc's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
