Star Bulk Carriers's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Star Bulk Carriers's SIR currently stands at 0.4. In other words for every 100,000 Star Bulk Carriers shares traded daily on the market, roughly 400 shares are currently held short.
However Star Bulk Carriers's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Star Bulk Carriers shares, or, against the total number of tradable Star Bulk Carriers shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float").

Star Bulk Carriers share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 40% of net profits
Recently Star Bulk Carriers has paid out, on average, around 40% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Star Bulk Carriers shareholders could enjoy a 6.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Star Bulk Carriers's case, that would currently equate to about $0.3 per share.
While Star Bulk Carriers's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Star Bulk Carriers may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Star Bulk Carriers's most recent dividend payout was on 13 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Star Bulk Carriers's shares ever split?
Star Bulk Carriers's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 19 June 2016. So if you had owned 5 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 Star Bulk Carriers shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Star Bulk Carriers shares which in turn could have impacted Star Bulk Carriers's share price.
Star Bulk Carriers share price volatility
