Shorting Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shares

There are currently 2.7 million Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Washington Real Estate Investment Trust's "short interest". This figure is 13.7% up from 2.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shares can be evaluated.

Washington Real Estate Investment Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Washington Real Estate Investment Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Washington Real Estate Investment Trust's SIR currently stands at 2.38. In other words for every 100,000 Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2380 shares are currently held short.

However Washington Real Estate Investment Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Washington Real Estate Investment Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0321% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shares, roughly 32 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 Washington Real Estate Investment Trust.

Washington Real Estate Investment Trust share dividends

85%

Dividend payout ratio: 84.51% of net profits

Recently Washington Real Estate Investment Trust has paid out, on average, around 84.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shareholders could enjoy a 4.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Washington Real Estate Investment Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

Washington Real Estate Investment Trust'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.

Washington Real Estate Investment Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 5 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Washington Real Estate Investment Trust's shares ever split?

Washington Real Estate Investment Trust's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 31 May 1992. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Washington Real Estate Investment Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Washington Real Estate Investment Trust's share price.
