Shorting Dexterra Group shares
There are currently 43,896 Dexterra Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Dexterra Group's "short interest". This figure is 561.3% up from 6,638 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Dexterra Group shares can be evaluated.
Dexterra Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Dexterra Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dexterra Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dexterra Group shares traded daily (recently around 51041.860465116). Dexterra Group's SIR currently stands at 0.86. In other words for every 100,000 Dexterra Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 860 shares are currently held short.
However Dexterra Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dexterra Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dexterra Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dexterra Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dexterra Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0018% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dexterra 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 Dexterra Group.
Dexterra Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 76.34% of net profits
Recently Dexterra Group has paid out, on average, around 76.34% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.91% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dexterra Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dexterra Group's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.3 per share.
Dexterra Group'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.
Dexterra Group's most recent dividend payout was on 15 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Dexterra Group's shares ever split?
Dexterra Group's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 16 July 2020. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dexterra Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dexterra Group shares which in turn could have impacted Dexterra Group's share price.
