Shorting Hurco Companies shares

There are currently 21,257 Hurco Companies shares held short by investors – that's known as Hurco Companies's "short interest". This figure is 30.6% down from 30,628 last month.

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

Hurco Companies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Hurco Companies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hurco Companies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hurco Companies shares traded daily (recently around 23884.269662921). Hurco Companies's SIR currently stands at 0.89. In other words for every 100,000 Hurco Companies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 890 shares are currently held short.

However Hurco Companies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hurco Companies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hurco Companies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hurco Companies's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hurco Companies shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0038% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hurco Companies shares, roughly 4 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 Hurco Companies.

Hurco Companies share dividends

60%

Dividend payout ratio: 59.52% of net profits

Recently Hurco Companies has paid out, on average, around 59.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hurco Companies shareholders could enjoy a 1.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hurco Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.54 per share.

Hurco Companies'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.

Hurco Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 10 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
