There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Stanley Black-and-Decker shares can be evaluated.

Stanley Black-and-Decker's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Stanley Black-and-Decker's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Stanley Black-and-Decker shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Stanley Black-and-Decker shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Stanley Black-and-Decker's SIR currently stands at 2.88. In other words for every 100,000 Stanley Black-and-Decker shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2880 shares are currently held short.

However Stanley Black-and-Decker's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Stanley Black-and-Decker shares, or, against the total number of tradable Stanley Black-and-Decker shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Stanley Black-and-Decker's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Stanley Black-and-Decker shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0192% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Stanley Black-and-Decker shares, roughly 19 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 Stanley Black-and-Decker.

Stanley Black-and-Decker share dividends

35%

Dividend payout ratio: 35.32% of net profits

Recently Stanley Black-and-Decker has paid out, on average, around 35.32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.6% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Stanley Black-and-Decker shareholders could enjoy a 1.6% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Stanley Black-and-Decker's case, that would currently equate to about $2.8 per share.

While Stanley Black-and-Decker's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Stanley Black-and-Decker may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Stanley Black-and-Decker's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Stanley Black-and-Decker's shares ever split?

Stanley Black-and-Decker's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 June 1996. 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 Stanley Black-and-Decker shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stanley Black-and-Decker shares which in turn could have impacted Stanley Black-and-Decker's share price.

Stanley Black-and-Decker share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Stanley Black-and-Decker's shares have ranged in value from as little as $69.062 up to $190.7859. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SWK.US volatility(beta: 1.46)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Stanley Black-and-Decker's is 1.4648. This would suggest that Stanley Black-and-Decker's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
