Shorting Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares

There are currently 8.8 million Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Chesapeake Energy Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1% up from 8.7 million last month.

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

Chesapeake Energy Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Chesapeake Energy Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Chesapeake Energy Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.13. In other words for every 100,000 Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6130 shares are currently held short.

However Chesapeake Energy Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chesapeake Energy Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0956% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares, roughly 96 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 Chesapeake Energy Corporation.

Chesapeake Energy Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 2.81% of net profits

Recently Chesapeake Energy Corporation has paid out, on average, around 2.81% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chesapeake Energy Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chesapeake Energy Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.344 per share.

While Chesapeake Energy Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Chesapeake Energy Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Have Chesapeake Energy Corporation's shares ever split?

Chesapeake Energy Corporation's shares were split on a 1:200 basis on 14 April 2020. So if you had owned 200 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 19900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Chesapeake Energy Corporation's share price.

Chesapeake Energy Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Chesapeake Energy Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.4684 up to $67. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Chesapeake Energy 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).
