Shorting PDC Energy shares

There are currently 6.5 million PDC Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as PDC Energy's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% down from 6.9 million last month.

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

PDC Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PDC Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PDC Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PDC Energy shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). PDC Energy's SIR currently stands at 6.28. In other words for every 100,000 PDC Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6280 shares are currently held short.

However PDC Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PDC Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable PDC Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PDC Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PDC Energy shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0658% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PDC Energy shares, roughly 66 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against PDC Energy.

PDC Energy share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 3.25% of net profits

Recently PDC Energy has paid out, on average, around 3.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PDC Energy shareholders could enjoy a 1.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PDC Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.

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

PDC Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 23 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

PDC Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PDC Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.5736 up to $49.7. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while PDC Energy's is 3.4108. This would suggest that PDC Energy's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
