Shorting Levi Strauss-and-Co shares

There are currently 4.0 million Levi Strauss-and-Co shares held short by investors – that's known as Levi Strauss-and-Co's "short interest". This figure is 28.4% up from 3.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Levi Strauss-and-Co shares can be evaluated.

Levi Strauss-and-Co's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Levi Strauss-and-Co's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Levi Strauss-and-Co shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Levi Strauss-and-Co shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). Levi Strauss-and-Co's SIR currently stands at 1.86. In other words for every 100,000 Levi Strauss-and-Co shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1860 shares are currently held short.

However Levi Strauss-and-Co's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Levi Strauss-and-Co shares, or, against the total number of tradable Levi Strauss-and-Co shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Levi Strauss-and-Co's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Levi Strauss-and-Co shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0453% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Levi Strauss-and-Co shares, roughly 45 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 Levi Strauss-and-Co.

Levi Strauss-and-Co share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.18% of net profits

Recently Levi Strauss-and-Co has paid out, on average, around 21.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Levi Strauss-and-Co shareholders could enjoy a 0.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Levi Strauss-and-Co's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.

While Levi Strauss-and-Co's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Levi Strauss-and-Co is investing more in its future growth.

Levi Strauss-and-Co's most recent dividend payout was on 17 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Levi Strauss-and-Co share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Levi Strauss-and-Co's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.8275 up to $30.6894. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LEVI.US volatility(beta: 1.14)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Levi Strauss-and-Co's is 1.1392. This would suggest that Levi Strauss-and-Co's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
