Shorting Atlantic American Corporation shares

There are currently 153,027 Atlantic American Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Atlantic American Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 45.5% down from 280,835 last month.

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

Atlantic American Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Atlantic American Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.99. In other words for every 100,000 Atlantic American Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2990 shares are currently held short.

However Atlantic American Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Atlantic American Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Atlantic American Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Atlantic American Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Atlantic American Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.035% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Atlantic American Corporation shares, roughly 35 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 Atlantic American Corporation.

Atlantic American Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 2.49% of net profits

Recently Atlantic American Corporation has paid out, on average, around 2.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Atlantic American Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Atlantic American Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.02 per share.

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

Atlantic American Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 26 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Atlantic American Corporation's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 3 November 1986. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Atlantic American Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Atlantic American Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Atlantic American Corporation's share price.
