Shorting Owens-and-Minor shares

There are currently 5.3 million Owens-and-Minor shares held short by investors – that's known as Owens-and-Minor's "short interest". This figure is 18.5% down from 6.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Owens-and-Minor shares can be evaluated.

Owens-and-Minor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Owens-and-Minor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Owens-and-Minor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Owens-and-Minor shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Owens-and-Minor's SIR currently stands at 4.35. In other words for every 100,000 Owens-and-Minor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4350 shares are currently held short.

However Owens-and-Minor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Owens-and-Minor shares, or, against the total number of tradable Owens-and-Minor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Owens-and-Minor's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Owens-and-Minor shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0732% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Owens-and-Minor shares, roughly 73 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 Owens-and-Minor.

Owens-and-Minor share dividends

0%

Dividend payout ratio: 0.27% of net profits

Recently Owens-and-Minor has paid out, on average, around 0.27% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Owens-and-Minor shareholders could enjoy a 0.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Owens-and-Minor's case, that would currently equate to about $0.01 per share.

While Owens-and-Minor's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Owens-and-Minor is investing more in its future growth.

Owens-and-Minor's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Owens-and-Minor's shares ever split?

Owens-and-Minor's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 31 March 2010. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 Owens-and-Minor shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Owens-and-Minor shares which in turn could have impacted Owens-and-Minor's share price.

Owens-and-Minor share price volatility
