Shorting Ventas shares
There are currently 10.8 million Ventas shares held short by investors – that's known as Ventas's "short interest". This figure is 27.4% up from 8.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ventas shares can be evaluated.
Ventas's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Ventas's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ventas shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ventas shares traded daily (recently around 3.1 million). Ventas's SIR currently stands at 3.5. In other words for every 100,000 Ventas shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3500 shares are currently held short.
However Ventas's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ventas shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ventas shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ventas's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ventas shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.029% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ventas shares, roughly 29 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 Ventas.

Ventas share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 78.26% of net profits
Recently Ventas has paid out, on average, around 78.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ventas shareholders could enjoy a 3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ventas's case, that would currently equate to about $1.8 per share.
Ventas'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.
Ventas's most recent dividend payout was on 13 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Ventas's shares ever split?
Ventas's shares were split on a 8757:10000 basis on 17 August 2015. So if you had owned 10000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 8757 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ventas shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 14.2% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ventas shares which in turn could have impacted Ventas's share price.
Ventas share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Ventas's shares have ranged in value from as little as $35.4622 up to $61.09. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

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