Shorting Utz Brands shares

There are currently 5.5 million Utz Brands shares held short by investors – that's known as Utz Brands's "short interest". This figure is 13.4% up from 4.8 million last month.

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

Utz Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Utz Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Utz Brands shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Utz Brands shares traded daily (recently around 623038.95216401). Utz Brands's SIR currently stands at 8.78. In other words for every 100,000 Utz Brands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8780 shares are currently held short.

However Utz Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Utz Brands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Utz Brands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Utz Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Utz Brands shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.089% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Utz Brands shares, roughly 89 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Utz Brands.

Utz Brands share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 28.16% of net profits

Recently Utz Brands has paid out, on average, around 28.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Utz Brands shareholders could enjoy a 1.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Utz Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.21 per share.

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

Utz Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 10 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

UTZ.US volatility(beta: 0.69)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
