There are currently 401,072 Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Evolution Petroleum Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8% up from 371,528 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Evolution Petroleum Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 147452.94117647). Evolution Petroleum Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.72. In other words for every 100,000 Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2720 shares are currently held short.
However Evolution Petroleum Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Evolution Petroleum Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0148% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares, roughly 15 shares are currently held short).

Dividend payout ratio: 318.18% of net profits
Recently Evolution Petroleum Corporation has paid out, on average, around 318.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Evolution Petroleum Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Evolution Petroleum Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.175 per share.
Evolution Petroleum Corporation'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.
Evolution Petroleum Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 31 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Evolution Petroleum Corporation's shares were split on a 1:40 basis on 5 February 2004. So if you had owned 40 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 Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Evolution Petroleum Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Evolution Petroleum Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Evolution Petroleum Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.0616 up to $4.8311. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Evolution Petroleum Corporation's is 1.595. This would suggest that Evolution Petroleum Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
