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 Dover Motorsports shares

There are currently 29,269 Dover Motorsports shares held short by investors – that's known as Dover Motorsports's "short interest". This figure is 4.7% up from 27,950 last month.

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

Dover Motorsports's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dover Motorsports's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dover Motorsports shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dover Motorsports shares traded daily (recently around 17016.860465116). Dover Motorsports's SIR currently stands at 1.72. In other words for every 100,000 Dover Motorsports shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1720 shares are currently held short.

However Dover Motorsports's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dover Motorsports shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dover Motorsports shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dover Motorsports's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dover Motorsports shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0024% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dover Motorsports shares, roughly 2 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 Dover Motorsports.

Dover Motorsports share dividends

33%

Dividend payout ratio: 33.33% of net profits

Recently Dover Motorsports has paid out, on average, around 33.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dover Motorsports shareholders could enjoy a 3.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dover Motorsports's case, that would currently equate to about $0.07 per share.

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

Dover Motorsports's most recent dividend payout was on 9 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Dover Motorsports's shares ever split?

Dover Motorsports's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 September 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dover Motorsports shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dover Motorsports shares which in turn could have impacted Dover Motorsports's share price.

Dover Motorsports share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Dover Motorsports's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.2462 up to $2.6111. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
