Shorting Equity Bancshares shares

There are currently 120,776 Equity Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as Equity Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 20.2% up from 100,508 last month.

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

Equity Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Equity Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Equity Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Equity Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 38463.694267516). Equity Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 3.14. In other words for every 100,000 Equity Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3140 shares are currently held short.

However Equity Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Equity Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable Equity Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Equity Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Equity Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0102% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Equity Bancshares shares, roughly 10 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 Equity Bancshares.

Equity Bancshares share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 2.36% of net profits

Recently Equity Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 2.36% of net profits as dividends.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Equity Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 0.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Equity Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.
