Shorting Kingstone Companies shares

There are currently 9,425 Kingstone Companies shares held short by investors – that's known as Kingstone Companies's "short interest". This figure is 36% down from 14,726 last month.

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

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

Kingstone Companies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kingstone Companies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kingstone Companies shares traded daily (recently around 14500). Kingstone Companies's SIR currently stands at 0.65. In other words for every 100,000 Kingstone Companies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 650 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 0.001% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kingstone Companies shares, roughly 1 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 Kingstone Companies.

Kingstone Companies share dividends

62%

Dividend payout ratio: 61.54% of net profits

Recently Kingstone Companies has paid out, on average, around 61.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.64% 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 2.64% 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.

Kingstone 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.

Kingstone Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 August 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.

Kingstone Companies share price volatility
