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

Altus Midstream Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Altus Midstream Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Altus Midstream Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Altus Midstream Company shares traded daily (recently around 35630.511811024). Altus Midstream Company's SIR currently stands at 5.08. In other words for every 100,000 Altus Midstream Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5080 shares are currently held short.

However Altus Midstream Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Altus Midstream Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Altus Midstream Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Altus Midstream Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Altus Midstream Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0567% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Altus Midstream Company shares, roughly 57 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 Altus Midstream Company.

Recently Altus Midstream Company has paid out, on average, around 16.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Altus Midstream Company shareholders could enjoy a 10.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Altus Midstream Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.5 per share.

Have Altus Midstream Company's shares ever split?

Altus Midstream Company's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 30 June 2020. So if you had owned 20 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Altus Midstream Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Altus Midstream Company shares which in turn could have impacted Altus Midstream Company's share price.
