Shorting Retail Opportunity Investments shares

There are currently 6.0 million Retail Opportunity Investments shares held short by investors – that's known as Retail Opportunity Investments's "short interest". This figure is 87.5% up from 3.2 million last month.

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

Retail Opportunity Investments's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Retail Opportunity Investments's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Retail Opportunity Investments shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Retail Opportunity Investments shares traded daily (recently around 877101.17302053). Retail Opportunity Investments's SIR currently stands at 6.82. In other words for every 100,000 Retail Opportunity Investments shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6820 shares are currently held short.

However Retail Opportunity Investments's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Retail Opportunity Investments shares, or, against the total number of tradable Retail Opportunity Investments shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Retail Opportunity Investments's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Retail Opportunity Investments shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0506% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Retail Opportunity Investments shares, roughly 51 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 Retail Opportunity Investments.

Retail Opportunity Investments share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 32.67% of net profits

Recently Retail Opportunity Investments has paid out, on average, around 32.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Retail Opportunity Investments shareholders could enjoy a 2.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Retail Opportunity Investments's case, that would currently equate to about $0.33 per share.

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

Retail Opportunity Investments's most recent dividend payout was on 7 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
