There are currently 13.2 million Apartment Investment and Management Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Apartment Investment and Management Company's "short interest". This figure is 368.7% up from 2.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Apartment Investment and Management Company shares can be evaluated.

Apartment Investment and Management Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Apartment Investment and Management Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Apartment Investment and Management Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Apartment Investment and Management Company shares traded daily (recently around 23.2 million). Apartment Investment and Management Company's SIR currently stands at 0.57. In other words for every 100,000 Apartment Investment and Management Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 570 shares are currently held short.

However Apartment Investment and Management Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Apartment Investment and Management Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Apartment Investment and Management Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Apartment Investment and Management Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Apartment Investment and Management Company shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1072% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Apartment Investment and Management Company shares, roughly 107 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 Apartment Investment and Management Company.

Apartment Investment and Management Company share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 2.57% of net profits

Recently Apartment Investment and Management Company has paid out, on average, around 2.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Apartment Investment and Management Company shareholders could enjoy a 5.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Apartment Investment and Management Company's case, that would currently equate to about $2.03 per share.

While Apartment Investment and Management Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Apartment Investment and Management Company is investing more in its future growth.

Have Apartment Investment and Management Company's shares ever split?

Apartment Investment and Management Company's shares were split on a 9295:1000 basis on 15 December 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 9295 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Apartment Investment and Management Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 89.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Apartment Investment and Management Company shares which in turn could have impacted Apartment Investment and Management Company's share price.
