Shorting Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares

There are currently 16.3 million Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares held short by investors – that's known as Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's "short interest". This figure is 0.4% up from 16.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares can be evaluated.

Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares traded daily (recently around 851580.24046001). Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's SIR currently stands at 19.13. In other words for every 100,000 Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares traded daily on the market, roughly 19130 shares are currently held short.

However Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's short interest could be expressed as 0.16% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares in existence, roughly 160 shares are currently held short) or 0.1629% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares, roughly 163 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Tanger Factory Outlet Centers.

Tanger Factory Outlet Centers share dividends

43%

Dividend payout ratio: 43.07% of net profits

Recently Tanger Factory Outlet Centers has paid out, on average, around 43.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shareholders could enjoy a 4.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's case, that would currently equate to about $0.532 per share.

While Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Tanger Factory Outlet Centers may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's most recent dividend payout was on 14 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's shares ever split?

Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 January 2011. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares which in turn could have impacted Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's share price.

Tanger Factory Outlet Centers share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.8336 up to $20.3448. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SKT.US volatility(beta: 1.91)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's is 1.9069. This would suggest that Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
