Shorting Ultrapar Participações S-A shares

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ultrapar Participações S-A shares can be evaluated.

Ultrapar Participações S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ultrapar Participações S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ultrapar Participações S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ultrapar Participações S-A shares traded daily (recently around 3.0 million). Ultrapar Participações S-A's SIR currently stands at 1.39. In other words for every 100,000 Ultrapar Participações S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1390 shares are currently held short.

However Ultrapar Participações S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ultrapar Participações S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ultrapar Participações S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ultrapar Participações S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ultrapar Participações S-A shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ultrapar Participações S-A shares, roughly 0 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 Ultrapar Participações S-A.

Ultrapar Participações S-A share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 40.39% of net profits

Recently Ultrapar Participações S-A has paid out, on average, around 40.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ultrapar Participações S-A shareholders could enjoy a 2.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ultrapar Participações S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.44 per share.

While Ultrapar Participações S-A's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Ultrapar Participações S-A may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Ultrapar Participações S-A's most recent dividend payout was on 21 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ultrapar Participações S-A's shares ever split?

Ultrapar Participações S-A's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 April 2019. 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 Ultrapar Participações S-A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ultrapar Participações S-A shares which in turn could have impacted Ultrapar Participações S-A's share price.

Ultrapar Participações S-A share price volatility

This would suggest that Ultrapar Participações S-A's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
