Shorting The Shyft Group shares

There are currently 1.0 million The Shyft Group shares held short by investors – that's known as The Shyft Group's "short interest". This figure is 29.9% up from 802,827 last month.

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

The Shyft Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The Shyft Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Shyft Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Shyft Group shares traded daily (recently around 179130.24054983). The Shyft Group's SIR currently stands at 5.82. In other words for every 100,000 The Shyft Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5820 shares are currently held short.

However The Shyft Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Shyft Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Shyft Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Shyft Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Shyft Group shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0323% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Shyft Group shares, roughly 32 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against The Shyft Group.

The Shyft Group share dividends

6%

Dividend payout ratio: 5.62% of net profits

Recently The Shyft Group has paid out, on average, around 5.62% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Shyft Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Shyft Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.

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

The Shyft Group's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have The Shyft Group's shares ever split?

The Shyft Group's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 28 June 2007. 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 The Shyft Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for The Shyft Group shares which in turn could have impacted The Shyft Group's share price.
