Shorting PHX Minerals shares

There are currently 132,704 PHX Minerals shares held short by investors – that's known as PHX Minerals's "short interest". This figure is 8.4% up from 122,441 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PHX Minerals shares can be evaluated.

PHX Minerals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PHX Minerals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PHX Minerals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PHX Minerals shares traded daily (recently around 207350). PHX Minerals's SIR currently stands at 0.64. In other words for every 100,000 PHX Minerals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 640 shares are currently held short.

However PHX Minerals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PHX Minerals shares, or, against the total number of tradable PHX Minerals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PHX Minerals's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PHX Minerals shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0069% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PHX Minerals shares, roughly 7 shares are currently held short).

PHX Minerals share dividends

18%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.5% of net profits

Recently PHX Minerals has paid out, on average, around 17.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PHX Minerals shareholders could enjoy a 1.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PHX Minerals's case, that would currently equate to about $0.04 per share.

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

PHX Minerals's most recent dividend payout was on 5 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have PHX Minerals's shares ever split?

PHX Minerals's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 October 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your PHX Minerals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PHX Minerals shares which in turn could have impacted PHX Minerals's share price.

PHX Minerals share price volatility
