Shorting Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company shares

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company shares can be evaluated.

Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company shares traded daily (recently around 57366.101694915). Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company's SIR currently stands at 1.18. In other words for every 100,000 Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1180 shares are currently held short.

However Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0013% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company shares, roughly 1 shares are currently held short).

Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company share dividends

31%

Dividend payout ratio: 30.93% of net profits

Recently Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company has paid out, on average, around 30.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company shareholders could enjoy a 7.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.

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

Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company's shares ever split?

Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 10 December 2013. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company shares which in turn could have impacted Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company's share price.

Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.0509 up to $25.2594. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
