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

The StJoe Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The StJoe Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The StJoe Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The StJoe Company shares traded daily (recently around 416595.11278195). The StJoe Company's SIR currently stands at 7.98. In other words for every 100,000 The StJoe Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7980 shares are currently held short.

However The StJoe Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The StJoe Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable The StJoe Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The StJoe Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The StJoe Company shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1541% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The StJoe Company shares, roughly 154 shares are currently held short).

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The StJoe Company shareholders could enjoy a 0.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The StJoe Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.

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

Have The StJoe Company's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for The StJoe Company shares which in turn could have impacted The StJoe Company's share price.
