Is Harmony Gold Mining Company under- or over-valued?

Shorting Harmony Gold Mining Company shares

There are currently 22.6 million Harmony Gold Mining Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Harmony Gold Mining Company's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% down from 23.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Harmony Gold Mining Company shares can be evaluated.

Harmony Gold Mining Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Harmony Gold Mining Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Harmony Gold Mining Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Harmony Gold Mining Company shares traded daily (recently around 6.9 million). Harmony Gold Mining Company's SIR currently stands at 3.26. In other words for every 100,000 Harmony Gold Mining Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3260 shares are currently held short.

However Harmony Gold Mining Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Harmony Gold Mining Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Harmony Gold Mining Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Harmony Gold Mining Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Harmony Gold Mining Company shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0481% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Harmony Gold Mining Company shares, roughly 48 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 Harmony Gold Mining Company.

Harmony Gold Mining Company share dividends

33%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.54% of net profits

Recently Harmony Gold Mining Company has paid out, on average, around 32.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Harmony Gold Mining Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Harmony Gold Mining Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.37 per share.

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

Harmony Gold Mining Company's most recent dividend payout was on 24 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
