Is PotlatchDeltic Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

PotlatchDeltic Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PotlatchDeltic Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PotlatchDeltic Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PotlatchDeltic Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 428648.04270463). PotlatchDeltic Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.81. In other words for every 100,000 PotlatchDeltic Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2810 shares are currently held short.

However PotlatchDeltic Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PotlatchDeltic Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable PotlatchDeltic Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PotlatchDeltic Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PotlatchDeltic Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0259% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PotlatchDeltic Corporation shares, roughly 26 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 PotlatchDeltic Corporation.

PotlatchDeltic Corporation share dividends

99%

Dividend payout ratio: 98.77% of net profits

Recently PotlatchDeltic Corporation has paid out, on average, around 98.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PotlatchDeltic Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PotlatchDeltic Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.64 per share.

PotlatchDeltic Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

PotlatchDeltic Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 31 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have PotlatchDeltic Corporation's shares ever split?

PotlatchDeltic Corporation's shares were split on a 1000000:85 basis on 17 December 2008. So if you had owned 85 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1000000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your PotlatchDeltic Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PotlatchDeltic Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted PotlatchDeltic Corporation's share price.

This would suggest that PotlatchDeltic Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
