Shorting Diamondback Energy shares
There are currently 2.7 million Diamondback Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Diamondback Energy's "short interest". This figure is 25.3% down from 3.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Diamondback Energy shares can be evaluated.
Diamondback Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Diamondback Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Diamondback Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Diamondback Energy shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Diamondback Energy's SIR currently stands at 1.55. In other words for every 100,000 Diamondback Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1550 shares are currently held short.
However Diamondback Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Diamondback Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Diamondback Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Diamondback Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Diamondback Energy shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0226% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Diamondback Energy shares, roughly 23 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 Diamondback Energy.

Diamondback Energy share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 39.85% of net profits
Recently Diamondback Energy has paid out, on average, around 39.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.84% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Diamondback Energy shareholders could enjoy a 1.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Diamondback Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $1.55 per share.
While Diamondback Energy's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Diamondback Energy may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
