Shorting Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares can be evaluated.

Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares traded daily (recently around 601151.19617225). Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's SIR currently stands at 4.18. In other words for every 100,000 Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4180 shares are currently held short.

However Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares, or, against the total number of tradable Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0272% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shares, roughly 27 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 Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts.

54%

Dividend payout ratio: 53.93% of net profits

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts shareholders could enjoy a 0.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts'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.

Wyndham Hotels-and-Resorts's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
