Shorting Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares

There are currently 4.1 million Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares held short by investors – that's known as Smith-and-Wesson Brands's "short interest". This figure is 24% down from 5.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares can be evaluated.

Smith-and-Wesson Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Smith-and-Wesson Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). Smith-and-Wesson Brands's SIR currently stands at 1.9. In other words for every 100,000 Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1900 shares are currently held short.

However Smith-and-Wesson Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Smith-and-Wesson Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0775% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares, roughly 78 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 Smith-and-Wesson Brands.

Smith-and-Wesson Brands share dividends

4%

Dividend payout ratio: 4.18% of net profits

Recently Smith-and-Wesson Brands has paid out, on average, around 4.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Smith-and-Wesson Brands shareholders could enjoy a 1.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Smith-and-Wesson Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

While Smith-and-Wesson Brands's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Smith-and-Wesson Brands is investing more in its future growth.

Smith-and-Wesson Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Smith-and-Wesson Brands's shares ever split?

Smith-and-Wesson Brands's shares were split on a 1301:1000 basis on 24 August 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1301 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 23.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Smith-and-Wesson Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Smith-and-Wesson Brands's share price.
