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

CoreSite Realty Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CoreSite Realty Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CoreSite Realty Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CoreSite Realty Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 317571.1026616). CoreSite Realty Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.63. In other words for every 100,000 CoreSite Realty Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2630 shares are currently held short.

However CoreSite Realty Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CoreSite Realty Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable CoreSite Realty Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CoreSite Realty Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CoreSite Realty Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0254% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CoreSite Realty Corporation shares, roughly 25 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 CoreSite Realty Corporation.

CoreSite Realty Corporation share dividends

93%

Dividend payout ratio: 92.79% of net profits

Recently CoreSite Realty Corporation has paid out, on average, around 92.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CoreSite Realty Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CoreSite Realty Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $4.92 per share.

CoreSite Realty Corporation'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.

CoreSite Realty Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CoreSite Realty Corporation's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CoreSite Realty Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CoreSite Realty Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted CoreSite Realty Corporation's share price.
