Shorting Hanesbrands shares

There are currently 19.9 million Hanesbrands shares held short by investors – that's known as Hanesbrands's "short interest". This figure is 17.9% up from 16.8 million last month.

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

Hanesbrands's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Hanesbrands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hanesbrands shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hanesbrands shares traded daily (recently around 5.5 million). Hanesbrands's SIR currently stands at 3.59. In other words for every 100,000 Hanesbrands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3590 shares are currently held short.

However Hanesbrands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hanesbrands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hanesbrands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hanesbrands's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hanesbrands shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0642% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hanesbrands shares, roughly 64 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 Hanesbrands.

Hanesbrands share dividends

34%

Dividend payout ratio: 33.52% of net profits

Recently Hanesbrands has paid out, on average, around 33.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hanesbrands shareholders could enjoy a 3.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hanesbrands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

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

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

Have Hanesbrands's shares ever split?

Hanesbrands's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 3 March 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hanesbrands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hanesbrands shares which in turn could have impacted Hanesbrands's share price.

Hanesbrands share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Hanesbrands's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$9.8923 up to US$22.6385. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HBI.US volatility(beta: 1.54)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 Hanesbrands's is 1.5364. This would suggest that Hanesbrands's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
