Shorting Sculptor Capital Management shares

There are currently 806,584 Sculptor Capital Management shares held short by investors – that's known as Sculptor Capital Management's "short interest". This figure is 11.1% down from 907,273 last month.

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

Sculptor Capital Management's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sculptor Capital Management's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sculptor Capital Management shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sculptor Capital Management shares traded daily (recently around 160354.67196819). Sculptor Capital Management's SIR currently stands at 5.03. In other words for every 100,000 Sculptor Capital Management shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5030 shares are currently held short.

However Sculptor Capital Management's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sculptor Capital Management shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sculptor Capital Management shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sculptor Capital Management's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sculptor Capital Management shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0467% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sculptor Capital Management shares, roughly 47 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 Sculptor Capital Management.

Sculptor Capital Management share dividends

34%

Dividend payout ratio: 34.15% of net profits

Recently Sculptor Capital Management has paid out, on average, around 34.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 11.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sculptor Capital Management shareholders could enjoy a 11.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sculptor Capital Management's case, that would currently equate to about $2.65 per share.

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

Sculptor Capital Management's most recent dividend payout was on 24 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sculptor Capital Management's shares ever split?

Sculptor Capital Management's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 3 January 2019. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sculptor Capital Management shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sculptor Capital Management shares which in turn could have impacted Sculptor Capital Management's share price.

Sculptor Capital Management share price volatility
