Shorting Costamare shares

There are currently 1.1 million Costamare shares held short by investors – that's known as Costamare's "short interest". This figure is 27% down from 1.5 million last month.

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

Costamare's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Costamare's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Costamare shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Costamare shares traded daily (recently around 662044.37869822). Costamare's SIR currently stands at 1.69. In other words for every 100,000 Costamare shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1690 shares are currently held short.

However Costamare's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Costamare shares, or, against the total number of tradable Costamare shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Costamare's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Costamare shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0214% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Costamare shares, roughly 21 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 Costamare.

Costamare share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 39.22% of net profits

Recently Costamare has paid out, on average, around 39.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Costamare shareholders could enjoy a 3.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Costamare's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

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

Costamare's most recent dividend payout was on 5 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Costamare share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Costamare's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.7883 up to $10.78. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CMRE.US volatility(beta: 1.69)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 Costamare's is 1.6922. This would suggest that Costamare's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
