TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 29.0 million VICI Properties shares held short by investors – that's known as VICI Properties's "short interest". This figure is 3.2% up from 28.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting VICI Properties shares can be evaluated.
VICI Properties's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VICI Properties shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VICI Properties shares traded daily (recently around 3.6 million). VICI Properties's SIR currently stands at 8.03. In other words for every 100,000 VICI Properties shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8030 shares are currently held short.
However VICI Properties's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VICI Properties shares, or, against the total number of tradable VICI Properties shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VICI Properties's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VICI Properties shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0678% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VICI Properties shares, roughly 68 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 VICI Properties.

Dividend payout ratio: 89.23% of net profits
Recently VICI Properties has paid out, on average, around 89.23% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), VICI Properties shareholders could enjoy a 5.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In VICI Properties's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.
VICI 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.
VICI Properties's most recent dividend payout was on 8 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, VICI Properties's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.394 up to $27.4191. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while VICI Properties's is 1.1464. This would suggest that VICI 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).
