Shorting HighPeak Energy shares

There are currently 277,425 HighPeak Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as HighPeak Energy's "short interest". This figure is 8% down from 301,682 last month.

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

HighPeak Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

HighPeak Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of HighPeak Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of HighPeak Energy shares traded daily (recently around 58038.70292887). HighPeak Energy's SIR currently stands at 4.78. In other words for every 100,000 HighPeak Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4780 shares are currently held short.

However HighPeak Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of HighPeak Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable HighPeak Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case HighPeak Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 HighPeak Energy shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0563% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable HighPeak Energy shares, roughly 56 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 HighPeak Energy.

HighPeak Energy share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 55.38% of net profits

Recently HighPeak Energy has paid out, on average, around 55.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HighPeak Energy shareholders could enjoy a 0.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HighPeak Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $0.025 per share.

HighPeak Energy'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.

HighPeak Energy'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").
