Shorting Vontier Corporation shares

There are currently 4.2 million Vontier Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Vontier Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 27.5% down from 5.8 million last month.

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

Vontier Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vontier Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vontier Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vontier Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Vontier Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.48. In other words for every 100,000 Vontier Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3480 shares are currently held short.

However Vontier Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vontier Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vontier Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vontier Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vontier Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0278% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vontier Corporation shares, roughly 28 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 Vontier Corporation.

Vontier Corporation share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.09% of net profits

Recently Vontier Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vontier Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vontier Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.

While Vontier Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Vontier Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
