Shorting Brandywine Realty Trust shares

There are currently 8.5 million Brandywine Realty Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Brandywine Realty Trust's "short interest". This figure is 30.2% down from 12.2 million last month.

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

Brandywine Realty Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Brandywine Realty Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Brandywine Realty Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Brandywine Realty Trust shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). Brandywine Realty Trust's SIR currently stands at 4.13. In other words for every 100,000 Brandywine Realty Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4130 shares are currently held short.

However Brandywine Realty Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Brandywine Realty Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Brandywine Realty Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Brandywine Realty Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Brandywine Realty Trust shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0601% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Brandywine Realty Trust shares, roughly 60 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 Brandywine Realty Trust.

Brandywine Realty Trust share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 400% of net profits

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Brandywine Realty Trust shareholders could enjoy a 7.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brandywine Realty Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $0.76 per share.

Brandywine Realty Trust's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Brandywine Realty Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Brandywine Realty Trust's share price.
