In this case StepStone Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 StepStone Group stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0095% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable StepStone Group stocks, roughly 10 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 StepStone Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 19.44% of net profits

Recently StepStone Group has paid out, on average, around 19.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value.

In StepStone Group's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.

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