There are currently 1.4 million Trane Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Trane Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 2.3% down from 1.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Trane Technologies shares can be evaluated.

Trane Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Trane Technologies's SIR currently stands at 1.43. In other words for every 100,000 Trane Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1430 shares are currently held short.

However Trane Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Trane Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Trane Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Trane Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Trane Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0058% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Trane Technologies shares, roughly 6 shares are currently held short).

Trane Technologies share dividends

45%

Dividend payout ratio: 44.53% of net profits

Recently Trane Technologies has paid out, on average, around 44.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Trane Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 1.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Trane Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $2.36 per share.

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

Trane Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Trane Technologies's shares ever split?

Trane Technologies's shares were split on a 1289:1000 basis on 1 March 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1289 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Trane Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 22.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Trane Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Trane Technologies's share price.

Trane Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Trane Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$82.9199 up to US$189.3246. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TT.US volatility(beta: 1.23)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 Trane Technologies's is 1.2261. This would suggest that Trane Technologies's shares 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).
