Shorting Baker Hughes Company shares

There are currently 52.8 million Baker Hughes Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Baker Hughes Company's "short interest". This figure is 66.3% up from 31.8 million last month.

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

Baker Hughes Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Baker Hughes Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Baker Hughes Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Baker Hughes Company shares traded daily (recently around 7.2 million). Baker Hughes Company's SIR currently stands at 7.37. In other words for every 100,000 Baker Hughes Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7370 shares are currently held short.

However Baker Hughes Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Baker Hughes Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Baker Hughes Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Baker Hughes Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Baker Hughes Company shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0683% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Baker Hughes Company shares, roughly 68 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Baker Hughes Company.

Baker Hughes Company share dividends

5%

Dividend payout ratio: 5.14% of net profits

Recently Baker Hughes Company has paid out, on average, around 5.14% 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), Baker Hughes Company shareholders could enjoy a 3.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Baker Hughes Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.

While Baker Hughes Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Baker Hughes Company is investing more in its future growth.

Baker Hughes Company's most recent dividend payout was on 3 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Baker Hughes Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Baker Hughes Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.8096 up to $26.41. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BKR.US volatility(beta: 1.73)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 Baker Hughes Company's is 1.7285. This would suggest that Baker Hughes Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
