There are currently 580,848 UMH Properties shares held short by investors – that's known as UMH Properties's "short interest". This figure is 14.8% up from 505,819 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 279253.84615385). UMH Properties's SIR currently stands at 2.08. In other words for every 100,000 UMH Properties shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2080 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 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 UMH Properties shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0137% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable UMH Properties shares, roughly 14 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.

UMH Properties share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 94.84% of net profits

Recently UMH Properties has paid out, on average, around 94.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), UMH Properties shareholders could enjoy a 3.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In UMH Properties's case, that would currently equate to about $0.74 per share.

UMH Properties'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.

UMH Properties's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

UMH Properties share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, UMH Properties's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.5787 up to $25.7. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UMH.US volatility(beta: 1.11)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while UMH Properties's is 1.1106. This would suggest that UMH Properties'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).
