There are currently 120,714 Allied Motion Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Allied Motion Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 43.6% up from 84,058 last month.

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

Allied Motion Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Allied Motion Technologies's SIR currently stands at 3.31. In other words for every 100,000 Allied Motion Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3310 shares are currently held short.

However Allied Motion Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Allied Motion Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Allied Motion Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Allied Motion Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Allied Motion Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0157% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Allied Motion Technologies shares, roughly 16 shares are currently held short).

Dividend payout ratio: 7.95% of net profits

Recently Allied Motion Technologies has paid out, on average, around 7.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Allied Motion Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 0.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Allied Motion Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.

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

Allied Motion Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 2 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Allied Motion Technologies's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Allied Motion Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Allied Motion Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Allied Motion Technologies's share price.
