Shorting CMC Materials shares

There are currently 436,054 CMC Materials shares held short by investors – that's known as CMC Materials's "short interest". This figure is 11.2% down from 491,303 last month.

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

CMC Materials's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CMC Materials's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CMC Materials shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CMC Materials shares traded daily (recently around 242252.22222222). CMC Materials's SIR currently stands at 1.8. In other words for every 100,000 CMC Materials shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1800 shares are currently held short.

However CMC Materials's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CMC Materials shares, or, against the total number of tradable CMC Materials shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CMC Materials's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CMC Materials shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.015% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CMC Materials shares, roughly 15 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 CMC Materials.

CMC Materials share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 32.2% of net profits

Recently CMC Materials has paid out, on average, around 32.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CMC Materials shareholders could enjoy a 1.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CMC Materials's case, that would currently equate to about $1.78 per share.

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

CMC Materials's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

CMC Materials share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CMC Materials's shares have ranged in value from as little as $131.4709 up to $197.9948. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CCMP.US volatility(beta: 1.17)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while CMC Materials's is 1.1746. This would suggest that CMC Materials'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).
