The latest report of June 15 indicates that Air Products and Chemicals’ (APD) short interest has increased marginally on a sequential biweekly basis.

As a result, its short interest ratio is 2.1x, which indicates that it would take two days to cover all of its short positions.
The number of analysts tracking Air Products and Chemicals (APD) has remained constant at 21 in the past three months. Analysts’ consensus indicates a target price of $184.4 for the stock, implying a potential return of 18.9% over APD’s closing price of $155.16 as of June 27. In the past three months, the stock’s consensus target price has remained more or less constant, indicating that analysts are still positive on the stock despite the volatile market.
Peers Praxair (PX), Eastman Chemical (EMN), and Celanese (CE) have dividend yields of 2.1%, 2.2%, and 1.9%, respectively. APD’s current dividend yield is better than the dividend yields of its selected peers.
