Shorting Allegiant Travel Company shares

There are currently 1.9 million Allegiant Travel Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Allegiant Travel Company's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% up from 1.9 million last month.

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

Allegiant Travel Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Allegiant Travel Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Allegiant Travel Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Allegiant Travel Company shares traded daily (recently around 201500.53191489). Allegiant Travel Company's SIR currently stands at 9.4. In other words for every 100,000 Allegiant Travel Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9400 shares are currently held short.

However Allegiant Travel Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Allegiant Travel Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Allegiant Travel Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Allegiant Travel Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Allegiant Travel Company shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1993% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Allegiant Travel Company shares, roughly 199 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 Allegiant Travel Company.

Allegiant Travel Company share dividends

32%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.33% of net profits

Recently Allegiant Travel Company has paid out, on average, around 32.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Allegiant Travel Company shareholders could enjoy a 3.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Allegiant Travel Company's case, that would currently equate to about $2.8 per share.

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

Allegiant Travel Company's most recent dividend payout was on 12 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Allegiant Travel Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Allegiant Travel Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $60.06 up to $183.26. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ALGT.US volatility(beta: 1.5)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

This would suggest that Allegiant Travel Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
