There are currently 2.5 million NextEra Energy Partners shares held short by investors – that's known as NextEra Energy Partners's "short interest". This figure is 16.8% up from 2.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NextEra Energy Partners shares can be evaluated.

NextEra Energy Partners's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NextEra Energy Partners's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NextEra Energy Partners shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NextEra Energy Partners shares traded daily (recently around 541665.79520697). NextEra Energy Partners's SIR currently stands at 4.59. In other words for every 100,000 NextEra Energy Partners shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4590 shares are currently held short.

However NextEra Energy Partners's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NextEra Energy Partners shares, or, against the total number of tradable NextEra Energy Partners shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NextEra Energy Partners's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NextEra Energy Partners shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0335% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NextEra Energy Partners shares, roughly 34 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 NextEra Energy Partners.

NextEra Energy Partners share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 48.89% of net profits

Recently NextEra Energy Partners has paid out, on average, around 48.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.41% of the current stock value.

In NextEra Energy Partners's case, that would currently equate to about $2.425 per share.

While NextEra Energy Partners's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that NextEra Energy Partners may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

NextEra Energy Partners's most recent dividend payout was on 13 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
