Shorting Westwood Holdings Group shares

There are currently 17,877 Westwood Holdings Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Westwood Holdings Group's "short interest". This figure is 48.5% down from 34,687 last month.

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

Westwood Holdings Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Westwood Holdings Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Westwood Holdings Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Westwood Holdings Group shares traded daily (recently around 14534.146341463). Westwood Holdings Group's SIR currently stands at 1.23. In other words for every 100,000 Westwood Holdings Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1230 shares are currently held short.

However Westwood Holdings Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Westwood Holdings Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Westwood Holdings Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Westwood Holdings Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Westwood Holdings Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0024% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Westwood Holdings Group shares, roughly 2 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 Westwood Holdings Group.

Westwood Holdings Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 2.49% of net profits

Recently Westwood Holdings Group has paid out, on average, around 2.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Westwood Holdings Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Westwood Holdings Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

While Westwood Holdings Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Westwood Holdings Group is investing more in its future growth.

Westwood Holdings Group's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
