Shorting AMCON Distributing Company shares

There are currently 630 AMCON Distributing Company shares held short by investors – that's known as AMCON Distributing Company's "short interest". This figure is 37% up from 460 last month.

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

AMCON Distributing Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

AMCON Distributing Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AMCON Distributing Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AMCON Distributing Company shares traded daily (recently around 707.86516853933). AMCON Distributing Company's SIR currently stands at 0.89. In other words for every 100,000 AMCON Distributing Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 890 shares are currently held short.

However AMCON Distributing Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AMCON Distributing Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable AMCON Distributing Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AMCON Distributing Company's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AMCON Distributing Company shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0041% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AMCON Distributing Company shares, roughly 4 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against AMCON Distributing Company.

AMCON Distributing Company share dividends

25%

Dividend payout ratio: 25.15% of net profits

Recently AMCON Distributing Company has paid out, on average, around 25.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AMCON Distributing Company shareholders could enjoy a 0.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AMCON Distributing Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.

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

AMCON Distributing Company's most recent dividend payout was on 1 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AMCON Distributing Company's shares ever split?

AMCON Distributing Company's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 16 May 2004. So if you had owned 6 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 AMCON Distributing Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for AMCON Distributing Company shares which in turn could have impacted AMCON Distributing Company's share price.

AMCON Distributing Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AMCON Distributing Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $49.6199 up to $148. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
