Technology dividend stocks with the highest float short ratio originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Activists often sell stocks short. In the second step, they try to scary other investors in order to get the stock price down and to make some profits.
Today I like to show you which of the technology stocks have the highest float short ratio. The ratio shows you how many shares have been sold short. It's ever interesting to see which companies have some problems and investors like to speculate on a falling stock price. The higher the ratio is, the bigger the problems of the company.
These are my criteria:
- Positive Dividend Yield
- Technology Sector Relationship
- Float Short Ratio over 5 percent
- Market Capitalization above 2 Billion
20 technology dividend stocks have fulfilled these criteria. I recognized that technology stocks with a high float short are also highly priced but I don't think that it's the only reason for the short sale. Companies like Nokia have a tough fight to compete with companies like Apple or Samsung within the smart phone market. The market speculates that Nokia will fail to gain market shares.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 25.25 and forward P/E ratio is 16.37. The dividend yield has a value of 3.54 percent. Price to book ratio is 3.78 and price to sales ratio 2.69. The operating margin amounts to 15.31 percent and the beta ratio is 1.20. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 0.97.
