Genco Shipping-and-Trading's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Genco Shipping-and-Trading's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genco Shipping-and-Trading shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genco Shipping-and-Trading shares traded daily (recently around 616757.14285714).

However Genco Shipping-and-Trading's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genco Shipping-and-Trading shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genco Shipping-and-Trading shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genco Shipping-and-Trading's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genco Shipping-and-Trading shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.029% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genco Shipping-and-Trading shares, roughly 29 shares are currently held short).

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Genco Shipping-and-Trading shareholders could enjoy a 2.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Genco Shipping-and-Trading's case, that would currently equate to about $0.19 per share.

Have Genco Shipping-and-Trading's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Genco Shipping-and-Trading shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Genco Shipping-and-Trading shares which in turn could have impacted Genco Shipping-and-Trading's share price.
