There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 746195.55555556). Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.6. In other words for every 100,000 Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3600 shares are currently held short.

However Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0283% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation shares, roughly 28 shares are currently held short).

Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation share dividends

86%

Dividend payout ratio: 85.51% of net profits

Recently Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation has paid out, on average, around 85.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 4.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.

Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation'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.

Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation's shares ever split?

Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 1 October 1987. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation's share price.
