Shorting New Fortress Energy shares

There are currently 4.3 million New Fortress Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as New Fortress Energy's "short interest". This figure is 13.5% down from 5.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting New Fortress Energy shares can be evaluated.

New Fortress Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

New Fortress Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of New Fortress Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of New Fortress Energy shares traded daily (recently around 574374.76759628). New Fortress Energy's SIR currently stands at 7.53. In other words for every 100,000 New Fortress Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7530 shares are currently held short.

However New Fortress Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of New Fortress Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable New Fortress Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case New Fortress Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 New Fortress Energy shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.1077% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable New Fortress Energy shares, roughly 108 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against New Fortress Energy.

New Fortress Energy share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 1.91% of net profits

Recently New Fortress Energy has paid out, on average, around 1.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), New Fortress Energy shareholders could enjoy a 1.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In New Fortress Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

While New Fortress Energy's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that New Fortress Energy is investing more in its future growth.

New Fortress Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 17 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have New Fortress Energy's shares ever split?

New Fortress Energy's shares were split on 7 August 2020.

New Fortress Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, New Fortress Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.8 up to $65.3959. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NFE.US volatility(beta: 1.61)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while New Fortress Energy's is 1.6054. This would suggest that New Fortress Energy's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
