TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 12.1 million B2Gold shares held short by investors – that's known as B2Gold's "short interest". This figure is 48.4% up from 8.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting B2Gold shares can be evaluated.
B2Gold's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of B2Gold shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of B2Gold shares traded daily (recently around 7.1 million). B2Gold's SIR currently stands at 1.7. In other words for every 100,000 B2Gold shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1700 shares are currently held short.
However B2Gold's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of B2Gold shares. In this case B2Gold's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 B2Gold shares in existence, roughly 10 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 B2Gold.

Dividend payout ratio: 25.58% of net profits
Recently B2Gold has paid out, on average, around 25.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), B2Gold shareholders could enjoy a 2.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In B2Gold's case, that would currently equate to about $0.16 per share.
While B2Gold's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that B2Gold may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
B2Gold's most recent dividend payout was on 18 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, B2Gold's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.1237 up to $7.452. 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 MKT average) beta is 1, while B2Gold's is 1.319. This would suggest that B2Gold's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
