Shorting Equitable shares

There are currently 9.7 million Equitable shares held short by investors – that's known as Equitable's "short interest". This figure is 61.3% up from 6.0 million last month.

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

Equitable's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Equitable's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Equitable shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Equitable shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). Equitable's SIR currently stands at 3.43. In other words for every 100,000 Equitable shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3430 shares are currently held short.

However Equitable's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Equitable shares, or, against the total number of tradable Equitable shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Equitable's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Equitable shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0236% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Equitable shares, roughly 24 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 Equitable.

Equitable share dividends

12%

Dividend payout ratio: 11.76% of net profits

Recently Equitable has paid out, on average, around 11.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Equitable shareholders could enjoy a 2.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Equitable's case, that would currently equate to about $0.69 per share.

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

Equitable's most recent dividend payout was on 19 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Equitable share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Equitable's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.0088 up to $35.0671. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EQH.US volatility(beta: 1.64)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 Equitable's is 1.6356. This would suggest that Equitable's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
