There are currently 811,835 UMH Properties shares held short by investors – that's known as UMH Properties's "short interest". This figure is 10.4% down from 906,026 last month.

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

UMH Properties's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

UMH Properties's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of UMH Properties shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of UMH Properties shares traded daily (recently around 235998.54651163). UMH Properties's SIR currently stands at 3.44. In other words for every 100,000 UMH Properties shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3440 shares are currently held short.

However UMH Properties's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of UMH Properties shares, or, against the total number of tradable UMH Properties shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case UMH Properties's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 UMH Properties shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0207% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable UMH Properties shares, roughly 21 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 UMH Properties.

In UMH Properties's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.

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