Shorting Sachem Capital shares

There are currently 2,618 Sachem Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Sachem Capital's "short interest". This figure is 91.7% down from 31,506 last month.

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

Sachem Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sachem Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sachem Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sachem Capital shares traded daily (recently around 52360). Sachem Capital's SIR currently stands at 0.05. In other words for every 100,000 Sachem Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 50 shares are currently held short.

However Sachem Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sachem Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sachem Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sachem Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sachem Capital shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0001% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sachem Capital shares, roughly 0 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 Sachem Capital.

Sachem Capital share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 150% of net profits

Recently Sachem Capital has paid out, on average, around 150% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 11.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sachem Capital shareholders could enjoy a 11.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sachem Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.

Sachem Capital'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.

Sachem Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 4 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Sachem Capital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sachem Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.127 up to $4.35. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SACH.US volatility(beta: 1.43)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Sachem Capital's is 1.4324. This would suggest that Sachem Capital's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
