Shorting Harvest Capital Credit Corporation shares

There are currently 4,808 Harvest Capital Credit Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Harvest Capital Credit Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 45.8% down from 8,875 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Harvest Capital Credit Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Harvest Capital Credit Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Harvest Capital Credit Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Harvest Capital Credit Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Harvest Capital Credit Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 21854.545454545). Harvest Capital Credit Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.22. In other words for every 100,000 Harvest Capital Credit Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 220 shares are currently held short.

However Harvest Capital Credit Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Harvest Capital Credit Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Harvest Capital Credit Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Harvest Capital Credit Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Harvest Capital Credit Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0012% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Harvest Capital Credit Corporation 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 Harvest Capital Credit Corporation.

Harvest Capital Credit Corporation share dividends

86%

Dividend payout ratio: 85.71% of net profits

Recently Harvest Capital Credit Corporation has paid out, on average, around 85.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Harvest Capital Credit Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 6.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Harvest Capital Credit Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

Harvest Capital Credit Corporation'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.

Harvest Capital Credit Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 28 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Harvest Capital Credit Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Harvest Capital Credit Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.9313 up to $9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HCAP.US volatility(beta: 1.22)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Harvest Capital Credit Corporation's is 1.2168. This would suggest that Harvest Capital Credit Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
