Shorting Innovative Industrial Properties shares

There are currently 1.9 million Innovative Industrial Properties shares held short by investors – that's known as Innovative Industrial Properties's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% up from 1.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Innovative Industrial Properties shares can be evaluated.

Innovative Industrial Properties's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Innovative Industrial Properties's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Innovative Industrial Properties shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Innovative Industrial Properties shares traded daily (recently around 498747.32620321). Innovative Industrial Properties's SIR currently stands at 3.74. In other words for every 100,000 Innovative Industrial Properties shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3740 shares are currently held short.

However Innovative Industrial Properties's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Innovative Industrial Properties shares, or, against the total number of tradable Innovative Industrial Properties shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Innovative Industrial Properties's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Innovative Industrial Properties shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0869% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Innovative Industrial Properties shares, roughly 87 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 Innovative Industrial Properties.

Innovative Industrial Properties share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 132.64% of net profits

Recently Innovative Industrial Properties has paid out, on average, around 132.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Innovative Industrial Properties shareholders could enjoy a 2.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Innovative Industrial Properties's case, that would currently equate to about $4.23 per share.

Innovative Industrial Properties'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.

Innovative Industrial Properties's most recent dividend payout was on 15 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
