Shorting Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares

There are currently 36.8 million Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares held short by investors – that's known as Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's "short interest". This figure is 17.8% down from 44.8 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 6.3 million). Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's SIR currently stands at 5.81. In other words for every 100,000 Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5810 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 0.39% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares in existence, roughly 390 shares are currently held short) or 0.5868% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tanger Factory Outlet Centers shares, roughly 587 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Tanger Factory Outlet Centers.

Tanger Factory Outlet Centers share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 33.86% of net profits

Recently Tanger Factory Outlet Centers has paid out, on average, around 33.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.86% 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 4.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tanger Factory Outlet Centers's case, that would currently equate to about $0.357 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 12 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 January 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 25 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
