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

Huntington Ingalls Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Huntington Ingalls Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Huntington Ingalls Industries stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Huntington Ingalls Industries stocks traded daily (recently around 176442.23433243). Huntington Ingalls Industries's SIR currently stands at 3.67.

However Huntington Ingalls Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Huntington Ingalls Industries stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Huntington Ingalls Industries stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Huntington Ingalls Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Huntington Ingalls Industries stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0165% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Huntington Ingalls Industries stocks, roughly 17 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 Huntington Ingalls Industries.

Huntington Ingalls Industries stock dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 24.68% of net profits

Recently Huntington Ingalls Industries has paid out, on average, around 24.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Huntington Ingalls Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Huntington Ingalls Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $4.45 per share.

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

Huntington Ingalls Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 10 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 26 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Huntington Ingalls Industries stocks ever split?

Huntington Ingalls Industries stocks were split on a 1:2 basis on 5 December 2003. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Huntington Ingalls Industries stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Huntington Ingalls Industries stocks which in turn could have impacted Huntington Ingalls Industries's stock price.

Huntington Ingalls Industries stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Huntington Ingalls Industries's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $133.2459 up to $222.891. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HII.US volatility(beta: 1)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Huntington Ingalls Industries's is 1.0005. This would suggest that Huntington Ingalls Industries's stocks are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
