Acme United Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 35.48% of net profits
Recently Acme United Corporation has paid out, on average, around 35.48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Acme United Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Acme United Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.54 per share.
While Acme United Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Acme United Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Acme United Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 26 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Acme United Corporation's shares ever split?
Acme United Corporation's shares were split on a 4:3 basis on 25 July 1983. So if you had owned 3 shares 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 Acme United Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Acme United Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Acme United Corporation's share price.
