Shorting Richardson Electronics shares

There are currently 17,730 Richardson Electronics shares held short by investors – that's known as Richardson Electronics's "short interest". This figure is 28.2% down from 24,680 last month.

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

Richardson Electronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Richardson Electronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Richardson Electronics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Richardson Electronics shares traded daily (recently around 45461.538461538). Richardson Electronics's SIR currently stands at 0.39. In other words for every 100,000 Richardson Electronics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 390 shares are currently held short.

However Richardson Electronics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Richardson Electronics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Richardson Electronics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Richardson Electronics's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Richardson Electronics shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0022% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Richardson Electronics shares, roughly 2 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 Richardson Electronics.

Richardson Electronics share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 67.78% of net profits

Recently Richardson Electronics has paid out, on average, around 67.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Richardson Electronics shareholders could enjoy a 2.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Richardson Electronics's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.

Richardson Electronics'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.

Richardson Electronics's most recent dividend payout was on 24 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Richardson Electronics's shares ever split?

Richardson Electronics's shares were split on a 110:100 basis on 25 October 1987. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 110 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Richardson Electronics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Richardson Electronics shares which in turn could have impacted Richardson Electronics's share price.

Richardson Electronics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Richardson Electronics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.9415 up to $10.37. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
