There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Newtek Business Services shares can be evaluated.

Newtek Business Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Newtek Business Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Newtek Business Services shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Newtek Business Services shares traded daily (recently around 189057.79220779). Newtek Business Services's SIR currently stands at 1.54. In other words for every 100,000 Newtek Business Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1540 shares are currently held short.

However Newtek Business Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Newtek Business Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable Newtek Business Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Newtek Business Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Newtek Business Services shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0138% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Newtek Business Services shares, roughly 14 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 Newtek Business Services.

Newtek Business Services share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 1.02% of net profits

Recently Newtek Business Services has paid out, on average, around 1.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Newtek Business Services shareholders could enjoy a 7.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Newtek Business Services's case, that would currently equate to about $2.053 per share.

While Newtek Business Services's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Newtek Business Services is investing more in its future growth.

Newtek Business Services's most recent dividend payout was on 31 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Newtek Business Services's shares ever split?

Newtek Business Services's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 23 October 2014. 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 Newtek Business Services shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Newtek Business Services shares which in turn could have impacted Newtek Business Services's share price.

Newtek Business Services share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Newtek Business Services's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.6009 up to $28.1027. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NEWT.US volatility(beta: 1.22)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 Newtek Business Services's is 1.2162. This would suggest that Newtek Business Services's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
