Shorting Alexanders shares

There are currently 87,186 Alexanders shares held short by investors – that's known as Alexanders's "short interest". This figure is 5.3% down from 92,090 last month.

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

Alexanders's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Alexanders's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Alexanders shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Alexanders shares traded daily (recently around 9907.5). Alexanders's SIR currently stands at 8.8. In other words for every 100,000 Alexanders shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8800 shares are currently held short.

However Alexanders's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Alexanders shares, or, against the total number of tradable Alexanders shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Alexanders's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Alexanders shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0252% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Alexanders shares, roughly 25 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Alexanders.

Alexanders share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.12% of net profits

Recently Alexanders has paid out, on average, around 1.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Alexanders shareholders could enjoy a 6.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Alexanders's case, that would currently equate to about $18 per share.

While Alexanders's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Alexanders is investing more in its future growth.

Alexanders's most recent dividend payout was on 11 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
