Shorting GasLog shares

There are currently 5.0 million GasLog shares held short by investors – that's known as GasLog's "short interest". This figure is 21.2% down from 6.3 million last month.

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

GasLog's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

GasLog's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GasLog shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GasLog shares traded daily (recently around 970084.14872798). GasLog's SIR currently stands at 5.11. In other words for every 100,000 GasLog shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5110 shares are currently held short.

However GasLog's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GasLog shares, or, against the total number of tradable GasLog shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GasLog's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GasLog shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0811% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GasLog shares, roughly 81 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against GasLog.

GasLog share dividends

100%

Dividend payout ratio: 100% of net profits

Recently GasLog has paid out, on average, around 100% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.32% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GasLog shareholders could enjoy a 5.32% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GasLog's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

GasLog'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.

GasLog's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

GasLog share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, GasLog's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.1919 up to $9.3158. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GLOG.US volatility(beta: 1.35)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 GasLog's is 1.3549. This would suggest that GasLog's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
