Shorting Ecovyst shares

There are currently 1.0 million Ecovyst shares held short by investors – that's known as Ecovyst's "short interest". This figure is 12.5% up from 895,077 last month.

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

Ecovyst's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ecovyst's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ecovyst shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ecovyst shares traded daily (recently around 348397.57785467). Ecovyst's SIR currently stands at 2.89. In other words for every 100,000 Ecovyst shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2890 shares are currently held short.

However Ecovyst's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ecovyst shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ecovyst shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ecovyst's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ecovyst shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0189% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ecovyst shares, roughly 19 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 Ecovyst.

Ecovyst share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 5.21% of net profits

Recently Ecovyst has paid out, on average, around 5.21% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ecovyst shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ecovyst's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.

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

Ecovyst's most recent dividend payout was on 28 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
