Shorting TechnipFMC shares

There are currently 18.4 million TechnipFMC shares held short by investors – that's known as TechnipFMC's "short interest". This figure is 0.4% down from 18.4 million last month.

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

TechnipFMC's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TechnipFMC's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TechnipFMC shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TechnipFMC shares traded daily (recently around 6.8 million). TechnipFMC's SIR currently stands at 2.7. In other words for every 100,000 TechnipFMC shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2700 shares are currently held short.

However TechnipFMC's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TechnipFMC shares, or, against the total number of tradable TechnipFMC shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TechnipFMC's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TechnipFMC shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.041% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TechnipFMC shares, roughly 41 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 TechnipFMC.

TechnipFMC share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 76.47% of net profits

Recently TechnipFMC has paid out, on average, around 76.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TechnipFMC shareholders could enjoy a 1.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TechnipFMC's case, that would currently equate to about $0.13 per share.

TechnipFMC'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.

TechnipFMC's most recent dividend payout was on 8 April 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have TechnipFMC's shares ever split?

TechnipFMC's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 January 2017. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your TechnipFMC shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for TechnipFMC shares which in turn could have impacted TechnipFMC's share price.

TechnipFMC share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TechnipFMC's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.3973 up to $21.3893. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while TechnipFMC's is 2.5095. This would suggest that TechnipFMC's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
