Shorting Northern Oil and Gas shares

There are currently 6.7 million Northern Oil and Gas shares held short by investors – that's known as Northern Oil and Gas's "short interest". This figure is 36.5% up from 4.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Northern Oil and Gas shares can be evaluated.

Northern Oil and Gas's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Northern Oil and Gas's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Northern Oil and Gas shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Northern Oil and Gas shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Northern Oil and Gas's SIR currently stands at 4.82. In other words for every 100,000 Northern Oil and Gas shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4820 shares are currently held short.

However Northern Oil and Gas's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Northern Oil and Gas shares, or, against the total number of tradable Northern Oil and Gas shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Northern Oil and Gas's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Northern Oil and Gas shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1395% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Northern Oil and Gas shares, roughly 140 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 Northern Oil and Gas.

Northern Oil and Gas share dividends

2%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.52% of net profits

Recently Northern Oil and Gas has paid out, on average, around 1.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Northern Oil and Gas shareholders could enjoy a 0.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Northern Oil and Gas's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.

While Northern Oil and Gas's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Northern Oil and Gas is investing more in its future growth.

Northern Oil and Gas's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Northern Oil and Gas's shares ever split?

Northern Oil and Gas's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 20 September 2020. So if you had owned 10 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 Northern Oil and Gas shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Northern Oil and Gas shares which in turn could have impacted Northern Oil and Gas's share price.

Northern Oil and Gas share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Northern Oil and Gas's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.3398 up to $21.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
