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

STAG Industrial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

STAG Industrial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of STAG Industrial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of STAG Industrial shares traded daily (recently around 709988.35978836). STAG Industrial's SIR currently stands at 1.89. In other words for every 100,000 STAG Industrial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1890 shares are currently held short.

However STAG Industrial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of STAG Industrial shares, or, against the total number of tradable STAG Industrial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case STAG Industrial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 STAG Industrial shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0117% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable STAG Industrial shares, roughly 12 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 STAG Industrial.

STAG Industrial share dividends

59%

Dividend payout ratio: 59.26% of net profits

Recently STAG Industrial has paid out, on average, around 59.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), STAG Industrial shareholders could enjoy a 4.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In STAG Industrial's case, that would currently equate to about $1.44 per share.

STAG Industrial'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.

STAG Industrial's most recent dividend payout was on 15 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
