Shorting Equity Commonwealth shares
There are currently 6.3 million Equity Commonwealth shares held short by investors – that's known as Equity Commonwealth's "short interest". This figure is 82.3% up from 3.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Equity Commonwealth shares can be evaluated.
Equity Commonwealth's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Equity Commonwealth's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Equity Commonwealth shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Equity Commonwealth shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Equity Commonwealth's SIR currently stands at 3.97. In other words for every 100,000 Equity Commonwealth shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3970 shares are currently held short.
However Equity Commonwealth's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Equity Commonwealth shares, or, against the total number of tradable Equity Commonwealth shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Equity Commonwealth's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Equity Commonwealth shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0532% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Equity Commonwealth shares, roughly 53 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 Commonwealth.

Equity Commonwealth share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 175% of net profits
Recently Equity Commonwealth has paid out, on average, around 175% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Equity Commonwealth shareholders could enjoy a 10.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Equity Commonwealth's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
Equity Commonwealth's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Equity Commonwealth's most recent dividend payout was on 19 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Equity Commonwealth's shares ever split?
Equity Commonwealth's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 30 June 2010. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Equity Commonwealth shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Equity Commonwealth shares which in turn could have impacted Equity Commonwealth's share price.
Equity Commonwealth share price volatility
