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

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.

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".
