Shorting BK Technologies Corporation shares

There are currently 6,281 BK Technologies Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as BK Technologies Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 53.2% up from 4,099 last month.

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

BK Technologies Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BK Technologies Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BK Technologies Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BK Technologies Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 62810). BK Technologies Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.1. In other words for every 100,000 BK Technologies Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 100 shares are currently held short.

However BK Technologies Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BK Technologies Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable BK Technologies Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BK Technologies Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BK Technologies Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0014% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BK Technologies Corporation shares, roughly 1 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 BK Technologies Corporation.

BK Technologies Corporation share dividends

41%

Dividend payout ratio: 40.86% of net profits

Recently BK Technologies Corporation has paid out, on average, around 40.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BK Technologies Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BK Technologies Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.08 per share.

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

BK Technologies Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 25 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have BK Technologies Corporation's shares ever split?

BK Technologies Corporation's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 16 June 1991. 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 BK Technologies Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BK Technologies Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted BK Technologies Corporation's share price.

BK Technologies Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BK Technologies Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.0596 up to $5.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BKTI.US volatility(beta: 1.3)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while BK Technologies Corporation's is 1.2984. This would suggest that BK Technologies Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
