Shorting Natural Health Trends shares

There are currently 64,553 Natural Health Trends shares held short by investors – that's known as Natural Health Trends's "short interest". This figure is 10% up from 58,669 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Natural Health Trends shares can be evaluated.

Natural Health Trends's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Natural Health Trends's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Natural Health Trends shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Natural Health Trends shares traded daily (recently around 31185.024154589). Natural Health Trends's SIR currently stands at 2.07. In other words for every 100,000 Natural Health Trends shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2070 shares are currently held short.

However Natural Health Trends's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Natural Health Trends shares, or, against the total number of tradable Natural Health Trends shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Natural Health Trends's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Natural Health Trends shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0093% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Natural Health Trends shares, roughly 9 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 Natural Health Trends.

Natural Health Trends share dividends

4%

Dividend payout ratio: 4.26% of net profits

Recently Natural Health Trends has paid out, on average, around 4.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 11.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Natural Health Trends shareholders could enjoy a 11.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Natural Health Trends's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.

While Natural Health Trends's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Natural Health Trends is investing more in its future growth.

Natural Health Trends's most recent dividend payout was on 4 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Natural Health Trends's shares ever split?

Natural Health Trends's shares were split on a 1:100 basis on 18 March 2003. So if you had owned 100 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 Natural Health Trends shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Natural Health Trends shares which in turn could have impacted Natural Health Trends's share price.

Natural Health Trends share price volatility
