Shorting Powell Industries shares
There are currently 246,253 Powell Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Powell Industries's "short interest". This figure is 12.5% down from 281,410 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Powell Industries shares can be evaluated.
Powell Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Powell Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Powell Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Powell Industries shares traded daily (recently around 41596.790540541). Powell Industries's SIR currently stands at 5.92. In other words for every 100,000 Powell Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5920 shares are currently held short.
However Powell Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Powell Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Powell Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Powell Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Powell Industries shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0273% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Powell Industries shares, roughly 27 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 Powell Industries.

Powell Industries share dividends

Recently Powell Industries has paid out, on average, around 2.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Powell Industries shareholders could enjoy a 3.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Powell Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $1.04 per share.
While Powell Industries's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Powell Industries is investing more in its future growth.
