That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Shorting CTO Realty Growth shares

There are currently 111,144 CTO Realty Growth shares held short by investors – that's known as CTO Realty Growth's "short interest". This figure is 6.2% up from 104,697 last month.

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

CTO Realty Growth's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CTO Realty Growth's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CTO Realty Growth shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CTO Realty Growth shares traded daily (recently around 66157.142857143). CTO Realty Growth's SIR currently stands at 1.68. In other words for every 100,000 CTO Realty Growth shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1680 shares are currently held short.

However CTO Realty Growth's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CTO Realty Growth shares, or, against the total number of tradable CTO Realty Growth shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CTO Realty Growth's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CTO Realty Growth shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0194% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CTO Realty Growth shares, roughly 19 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 CTO Realty Growth.

CTO Realty Growth share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 14.31% of net profits

Recently CTO Realty Growth has paid out, on average, around 14.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CTO Realty Growth shareholders could enjoy a 4.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CTO Realty Growth's case, that would currently equate to about $1.9 per share.

While CTO Realty Growth's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that CTO Realty Growth is investing more in its future growth.

CTO Realty Growth's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CTO Realty Growth's shares ever split?

CTO Realty Growth's shares were split on a 1228:1000 basis on 17 November 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1228 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CTO Realty Growth shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 18.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CTO Realty Growth shares which in turn could have impacted CTO Realty Growth's share price.
