AeroCentury share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 4.29% of net profits

Recently AeroCentury has paid out, on average, around 4.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AeroCentury shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AeroCentury's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.

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

AeroCentury's most recent dividend payout was on 12 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have AeroCentury's shares ever split?

AeroCentury's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 9 January 2022. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AeroCentury shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AeroCentury shares which in turn could have impacted AeroCentury's share price.

AeroCentury share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AeroCentury's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.5144 up to $13.206. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while AeroCentury's is 3.6984. This would suggest that AeroCentury's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
