There are currently 163 Cowen Group stocks held short by investors – that's known as Cowen Group's "short interest". This figure is 82.1% down from 911 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cowen Group stocks can be evaluated.
Cowen Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Cowen Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cowen Group stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cowen Group stocks traded daily (recently around inf billion). Cowen Group's SIR currently stands at 0. In other words for every 100,000 Cowen Group stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 0 stocks are currently held short.
However Cowen Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cowen Group stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Cowen Group stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cowen Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Cowen Group stocks in existence, roughly 0 stocks are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Cowen Group stocks, roughly 0 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 Cowen Group.

Cowen Group stock dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 24.4% of net profits
Recently Cowen Group has paid out, on average, around 24.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 18.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cowen Group shareholders could enjoy a 18.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cowen Group's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.
While Cowen Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Cowen Group is investing more in its future growth.
Cowen Group's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2019.
