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

PS Business Parks's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PS Business Parks's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PS Business Parks shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PS Business Parks shares traded daily (recently around 65677.202072539). PS Business Parks's SIR currently stands at 5.79. In other words for every 100,000 PS Business Parks shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5790 shares are currently held short.

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

Recently PS Business Parks has paid out, on average, around 62.78% of net profits as dividends.

In PS Business Parks's case, that would currently equate to about $4.2 per share.

PS Business Parks'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.
