Shorting ASML Holding N-V shares

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ASML Holding N-V shares can be evaluated.

ASML Holding N-V's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ASML Holding N-V's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ASML Holding N-V shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ASML Holding N-V shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). ASML Holding N-V's SIR currently stands at 1.16. In other words for every 100,000 ASML Holding N-V shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1160 shares are currently held short.

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

ASML Holding N-V share dividends

48%

Dividend payout ratio: 47.68% of net profits

Recently ASML Holding N-V has paid out, on average, around 47.68% 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), ASML Holding N-V shareholders could enjoy a 0.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ASML Holding N-V's case, that would currently equate to about $2.75 per share.

While ASML Holding N-V's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ASML Holding N-V may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

ASML Holding N-V's most recent dividend payout was on 12 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ASML Holding N-V's shares ever split?

ASML Holding N-V's shares were split on a 77:100 basis on 28 November 2012. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 77 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ASML Holding N-V shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 29.9% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for ASML Holding N-V shares which in turn could have impacted ASML Holding N-V's share price.
