Shorting American International Group shares

There are currently 7.1 million American International Group shares held short by investors – that's known as American International Group's "short interest". This figure is 10.8% up from 6.4 million last month.

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

American International Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

American International Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of American International Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of American International Group shares traded daily (recently around 3.9 million). American International Group's SIR currently stands at 1.84. In other words for every 100,000 American International Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1840 shares are currently held short.

However American International Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of American International Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable American International Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case American International Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 American International Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0083% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable American International Group shares, roughly 8 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 American International Group.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like American International Group is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

American International Group share dividends

37%

Dividend payout ratio: 36.99% of net profits

Recently American International Group has paid out, on average, around 36.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), American International Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In American International Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.28 per share.

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

American International Group's most recent dividend payout was on 28 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have American International Group's shares ever split?

American International Group's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 30 June 2009. 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 American International Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for American International Group shares which in turn could have impacted American International Group's share price.

American International Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, American International Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.0414 up to $53.7473. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AIG.US volatility(beta: 1.35)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while American International Group's is 1.3536. This would suggest that American International Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
