Shorting SFL Corporation shares

There are currently 1.8 million SFL Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as SFL Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5.2% down from 1.9 million last month.

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

SFL Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SFL Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SFL Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SFL Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). SFL Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.36. In other words for every 100,000 SFL Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1360 shares are currently held short.

However SFL Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SFL Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable SFL Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SFL Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SFL Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0196% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SFL Corporation shares, roughly 20 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 SFL Corporation.

SFL Corporation share dividends

48%

Dividend payout ratio: 47.75% of net profits

Recently SFL Corporation has paid out, on average, around 47.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.32% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SFL Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 8.32% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SFL Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.

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

SFL Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 28 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

SFL Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SFL Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.6464 up to $8.9886. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SFL.US volatility(beta: 1.13)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while SFL Corporation's is 1.1311. This would suggest that SFL Corporation'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).
