Shorting American National Group shares

There are currently 266,335 American National Group shares held short by investors – that's known as American National Group's "short interest". This figure is 5.6% down from 282,095 last month.

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

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

American National Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of American National Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of American National Group shares traded daily (recently around 160442.77108434). American National Group's SIR currently stands at 1.66. In other words for every 100,000 American National Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1660 shares are currently held short.

However American National Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of American National Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable American National Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case American National Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 American National Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0292% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable American National Group shares, roughly 29 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 National Group.

American National Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 9.46% of net profits

Recently American National Group has paid out, on average, around 9.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.73% of the current stock value.

In American National Group's case, that would currently equate to about $3.28 per share.

While American National Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that American National Group is investing more in its future growth.

American National Group's most recent dividend payout was on 16 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
