Air Products and Chemicals share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 61.07% of net profits

Recently Air Products and Chemicals has paid out, on average, around 61.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Air Products and Chemicals shareholders could enjoy a 2.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Air Products and Chemicals's case, that would currently equate to about $6.74 per share.

Air Products and Chemicals's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Air Products and Chemicals's most recent dividend payout was on 12 November 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Air Products and Chemicals's shares ever split?

Air Products and Chemicals's shares were split on a 1081:1000 basis on 2 October 2016. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1081 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Air Products and Chemicals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 7.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Air Products and Chemicals shares which in turn could have impacted Air Products and Chemicals's share price.

Air Products and Chemicals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Air Products and Chemicals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $220.8629 up to $322.8775. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

APD.US volatility(beta: 0.88)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Air Products and Chemicals's is 0.8772. This would suggest that Air Products and Chemicals's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
