Shorting Atlas shares

There are currently 6.1 million Atlas shares held short by investors – that's known as Atlas's "short interest". This figure is 7.6% down from 6.6 million last month.

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

Atlas's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Atlas's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Atlas shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Atlas shares traded daily (recently around 604175.02477701). Atlas's SIR currently stands at 10.09. In other words for every 100,000 Atlas shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10090 shares are currently held short.

However Atlas's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Atlas shares, or, against the total number of tradable Atlas shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Atlas's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Atlas shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0726% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Atlas shares, roughly 73 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Atlas.

Atlas share dividends

30%

Dividend payout ratio: 30.12% of net profits

Recently Atlas has paid out, on average, around 30.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Atlas shareholders could enjoy a 3.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Atlas's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

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

Atlas's most recent dividend payout was on 29 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Atlas share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Atlas's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.7085 up to $14.7001. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ATCO.US volatility(beta: 1.14)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 Atlas's is 1.1418. This would suggest that Atlas's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
