Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In other words for every 100,000 Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4260 shares are currently held short.

However Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0153% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated shares, roughly 15 shares are currently held short).

Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 52.6% of net profits

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 1.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $0.91 per share.

Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated'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.

Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated's shares ever split?

Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 27 April 2008. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated's share price.

Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated's is 1.1513. This would suggest that Ritchie BrosAuctioneers Incorporated's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
