Shorting Steven Madden shares

There are currently 2.5 million Steven Madden shares held short by investors – that's known as Steven Madden's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% up from 2.4 million last month.

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

Steven Madden's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Steven Madden's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Steven Madden shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Steven Madden shares traded daily (recently around 815185.01628664). Steven Madden's SIR currently stands at 3.07. In other words for every 100,000 Steven Madden shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3070 shares are currently held short.

However Steven Madden's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Steven Madden shares, or, against the total number of tradable Steven Madden shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Steven Madden's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Steven Madden shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0382% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Steven Madden shares, roughly 38 shares are currently held short).

Steven Madden share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 20% of net profits

Recently Steven Madden has paid out, on average, around 20% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Steven Madden shareholders could enjoy a 2.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Steven Madden's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

While Steven Madden's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Steven Madden is investing more in its future growth.

Have Steven Madden's shares ever split?

Steven Madden's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 12 October 2018. 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 Steven Madden shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Steven Madden shares which in turn could have impacted Steven Madden's share price.
