Shorting Levi Strauss-and-Co shares

There are currently 5.1 million Levi Strauss-and-Co shares held short by investors – that's known as Levi Strauss-and-Co's "short interest". This figure is 12.1% down from 5.8 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 1.8 million). Levi Strauss-and-Co's SIR currently stands at 2.75. In other words for every 100,000 Levi Strauss-and-Co shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2750 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 0.0633% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Levi Strauss-and-Co shares, roughly 63 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

71%

Dividend payout ratio: 71.43% of net profits

Recently Levi Strauss-and-Co has paid out, on average, around 71.43% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.83% 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 0.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Levi Strauss-and-Co's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.

Levi Strauss-and-Co'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.

Levi Strauss-and-Co's most recent dividend payout was on 24 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 May 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 $11.1071 up to $30.05. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LEVI.US volatility(beta: 1.07)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 1.0654. 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).
