Shorting Kinross Gold Corporation shares
There are currently 11.3 million Kinross Gold Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Kinross Gold Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 36.8% up from 8.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kinross Gold Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Kinross Gold Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Kinross Gold Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kinross Gold Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kinross Gold Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 4.0 million). Kinross Gold Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.84. In other words for every 100,000 Kinross Gold Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2840 shares are currently held short.
However Kinross Gold Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kinross Gold Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kinross Gold Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kinross Gold Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kinross Gold Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0098% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kinross Gold Corporation shares, roughly 10 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 Kinross Gold Corporation.
Kinross Gold Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 19.12% of net profits
Recently Kinross Gold Corporation has paid out, on average, around 19.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kinross Gold Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kinross Gold Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.12 per share.
While Kinross Gold Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Kinross Gold Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Kinross Gold Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 2 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Kinross Gold Corporation's shares ever split?
Kinross Gold Corporation's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 3 February 2003. So if you had owned 3 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 Kinross Gold Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kinross Gold Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Kinross Gold Corporation's share price.
Kinross Gold Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Kinross Gold Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$6.56 up to C$11.5278. 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 (TO average) beta is 1, while Kinross Gold Corporation's is 0.8311. This would suggest that Kinross Gold Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
