Shorting Global Partners shares

There are currently 34,543 Global Partners shares held short by investors – that's known as Global Partners's "short interest". This figure is 78.2% down from 158,154 last month.

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

Global Partners's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Global Partners's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Global Partners shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Global Partners shares traded daily (recently around 107946.875). Global Partners's SIR currently stands at 0.32. In other words for every 100,000 Global Partners shares traded daily on the market, roughly 320 shares are currently held short.

However Global Partners's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Global Partners shares, or, against the total number of tradable Global Partners shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Global Partners's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Global Partners shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0013% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Global Partners shares, roughly 1 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 Global Partners.

Global Partners share dividends

4%

Dividend payout ratio: 3.93% of net profits

Recently Global Partners has paid out, on average, around 3.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Global Partners shareholders could enjoy a 10.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Global Partners's case, that would currently equate to about $2.2 per share.

While Global Partners's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Global Partners is investing more in its future growth.

Global Partners's most recent dividend payout was on 12 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Global Partners share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Global Partners's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.3255 up to $26.883. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GLP.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 Global Partners's is 1.354. This would suggest that Global Partners's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
