Shorting Evans Bancorp shares

There are currently 23,073 Evans Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Evans Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 82.2% down from 129,699 last month.

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

Evans Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Evans Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Evans Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Evans Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 52438.636363636). Evans Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 0.44. In other words for every 100,000 Evans Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 440 shares are currently held short.

However Evans Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Evans Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Evans Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Evans Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Evans Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0054% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Evans Bancorp shares, roughly 5 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 Evans Bancorp.

Evans Bancorp share dividends

42%

Dividend payout ratio: 41.86% of net profits

Recently Evans Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 41.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Evans Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Evans Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.18 per share.

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

Evans Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 5 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Evans Bancorp's shares ever split?

Evans Bancorp's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 9 November 2005. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Evans Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Evans Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Evans Bancorp's share price.

Evans Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Evans Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.178 up to $40.33. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EVBN.US volatility(beta: 1.24)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Evans Bancorp's is 1.2416. This would suggest that Evans Bancorp's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
