Shorting Haverty Furniture Companies shares

There are currently 2.0 million Haverty Furniture Companies shares held short by investors – that's known as Haverty Furniture Companies's "short interest". This figure is 5.7% down from 2.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Haverty Furniture Companies shares can be evaluated.

Haverty Furniture Companies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Haverty Furniture Companies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Haverty Furniture Companies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Haverty Furniture Companies shares traded daily (recently around 260304.9744898). Haverty Furniture Companies's SIR currently stands at 7.84. In other words for every 100,000 Haverty Furniture Companies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7840 shares are currently held short.

However Haverty Furniture Companies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Haverty Furniture Companies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Haverty Furniture Companies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Haverty Furniture Companies's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Haverty Furniture Companies shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1415% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Haverty Furniture Companies shares, roughly 142 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 Haverty Furniture Companies.

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.01% of net profits

Recently Haverty Furniture Companies has paid out, on average, around 1.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Haverty Furniture Companies shareholders could enjoy a 2.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Haverty Furniture Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.79 per share.

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

Haverty Furniture Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 15 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Haverty Furniture Companies's shares ever split?

Haverty Furniture Companies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 August 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Haverty Furniture Companies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Haverty Furniture Companies shares which in turn could have impacted Haverty Furniture Companies's share price.
