Shorting Kingstone Companies shares

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

Kingstone Companies's SIR currently stands at 0.39. In other words for every 100,000 Kingstone Companies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 390 shares are currently held short.
However Kingstone Companies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kingstone Companies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kingstone Companies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kingstone Companies's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kingstone Companies shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0008% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kingstone Companies shares, roughly 1 shares are currently held short).

Kingstone Companies share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 28.57% of net profits
Recently Kingstone Companies has paid out, on average, around 28.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kingstone Companies shareholders could enjoy a 2.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kingstone Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.16 per share.
While Kingstone Companies's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Kingstone Companies may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Kingstone Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Kingstone Companies's shares ever split?
Kingstone Companies's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 25 August 2004. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kingstone Companies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kingstone Companies shares which in turn could have impacted Kingstone Companies's share price.
