Shorting Ameriprise Financial shares

There are currently 2.3 million Ameriprise Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Ameriprise Financial's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% down from 2.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ameriprise Financial shares can be evaluated.

Ameriprise Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ameriprise Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ameriprise Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ameriprise Financial shares traded daily (recently around 665117.20116618). Ameriprise Financial's SIR currently stands at 3.43. In other words for every 100,000 Ameriprise Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3430 shares are currently held short.

However Ameriprise Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ameriprise Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ameriprise Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ameriprise Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ameriprise Financial shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0224% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ameriprise Financial shares, roughly 22 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 Ameriprise Financial.

Ameriprise Financial share dividends

30%

Dividend payout ratio: 30.21% of net profits

Recently Ameriprise Financial has paid out, on average, around 30.21% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ameriprise Financial shareholders could enjoy a 1.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ameriprise Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $4.16 per share.

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

Ameriprise Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 20 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Ameriprise Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ameriprise Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$137.7381 up to US$269.29. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMP.US volatility(beta: 1.7)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 Ameriprise Financial's is 1.6957. This would suggest that Ameriprise Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
