Shorting UWM Holdings Corporation shares

There are currently 11.6 million UWM Holdings Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as UWM Holdings Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 17.5% down from 14.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting UWM Holdings Corporation shares can be evaluated.

UWM Holdings Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

UWM Holdings Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of UWM Holdings Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of UWM Holdings Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 7.0 million). UWM Holdings Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.65. In other words for every 100,000 UWM Holdings Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1650 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare UWM Holdings Corporation's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However UWM Holdings Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of UWM Holdings Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable UWM Holdings Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case UWM Holdings Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 UWM Holdings Corporation shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1392% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable UWM Holdings Corporation shares, roughly 139 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 UWM Holdings Corporation.

Recently UWM Holdings Corporation has paid out, on average, around 94.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.36% of the current stock value.
