Shorting Corteva shares
There are currently 9.3 million Corteva shares held short by investors – that's known as Corteva's "short interest". This figure is 83.2% up from 5.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Corteva shares can be evaluated.
Corteva's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Corteva's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Corteva shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Corteva shares traded daily (recently around 3.7 million). Corteva's SIR currently stands at 2.54. In other words for every 100,000 Corteva shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2540 shares are currently held short.
However Corteva's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Corteva shares, or, against the total number of tradable Corteva shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Corteva's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Corteva shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0127% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Corteva shares, roughly 13 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 Corteva.

Corteva share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 30.59% of net profits
Recently Corteva has paid out, on average, around 30.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Corteva shareholders could enjoy a 1.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Corteva's case, that would currently equate to about $0.26 per share.
While Corteva's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Corteva may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Corteva's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Over the last 12 months, Corteva's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$24.6265 up to US$49.8362. 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 average) beta is 1, while Corteva's is 0.8274. This would suggest that Corteva's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
