Shorting Granite Construction Incorporated shares

There are currently 3.1 million Granite Construction Incorporated shares held short by investors – that's known as Granite Construction Incorporated's "short interest". This figure is 6% up from 2.9 million last month.

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

Granite Construction Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Granite Construction Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Granite Construction Incorporated shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Granite Construction Incorporated shares traded daily (recently around 374166.38452237). Granite Construction Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 8.27. In other words for every 100,000 Granite Construction Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8270 shares are currently held short.

However Granite Construction Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Granite Construction Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Granite Construction Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Granite Construction Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Granite Construction Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0684% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Granite Construction Incorporated shares, roughly 68 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 Granite Construction Incorporated.

Granite Construction Incorporated share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 28.14% of net profits

Recently Granite Construction Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 28.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Granite Construction Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 1.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Granite Construction Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $0.52 per share.

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

Granite Construction Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Granite Construction Incorporated's shares ever split?

Granite Construction Incorporated's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 15 April 2001. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Granite Construction Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Granite Construction Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Granite Construction Incorporated's share price.

Granite Construction Incorporated share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Granite Construction Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.1135 up to $44.0321. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GVA.US volatility(beta: 1.52)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

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