Shorting ProAssurance Corporation shares

There are currently 501,640 ProAssurance Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as ProAssurance Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 39.6% down from 830,755 last month.

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

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

ProAssurance Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ProAssurance Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ProAssurance Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 192938.46153846). ProAssurance Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.6. In other words for every 100,000 ProAssurance Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2600 shares are currently held short.

However ProAssurance Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ProAssurance Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable ProAssurance Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ProAssurance Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ProAssurance Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0094% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ProAssurance Corporation shares, roughly 9 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 ProAssurance Corporation.

ProAssurance Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 31.25% of net profits

Recently ProAssurance Corporation has paid out, on average, around 31.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ProAssurance Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ProAssurance Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

While ProAssurance Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ProAssurance Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

ProAssurance Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ProAssurance Corporation's shares ever split?

ProAssurance Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 December 2012. 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 ProAssurance Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ProAssurance Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted ProAssurance Corporation's share price.

ProAssurance Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ProAssurance Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.4382 up to $28.9713. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while ProAssurance Corporation's is 0.3894. This would suggest that ProAssurance Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
