Shorting Columbia Property Trust shares

There are currently 1.2 million Columbia Property Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Columbia Property Trust's "short interest". This figure is 27.4% down from 1.7 million last month.

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

Columbia Property Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Columbia Property Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Columbia Property Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Columbia Property Trust shares traded daily (recently around 754616.96969697). Columbia Property Trust's SIR currently stands at 1.65. In other words for every 100,000 Columbia Property Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1650 shares are currently held short.

However Columbia Property Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Columbia Property Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Columbia Property Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Columbia Property Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Columbia Property Trust shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.011% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Columbia Property Trust shares, roughly 11 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 Columbia Property Trust.

Columbia Property Trust share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 77.06% of net profits

Recently Columbia Property Trust has paid out, on average, around 77.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Columbia Property Trust shareholders could enjoy a 4.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Columbia Property Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $0.84 per share.

Columbia Property 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.

Columbia Property Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Columbia Property Trust share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Columbia Property Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.7045 up to $19.49. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CXP.US volatility(beta: 1.36)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 Columbia Property Trust's is 1.3569. This would suggest that Columbia Property Trust's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
